A MAN disqualified from driving until 2049 was allegedly found behind the
wheel of a car, a court heard yesterday.

Steven Gordon Dean, 32, allegedly admitted to police he had driven from his
home in Ashcroft to a friend's place in Liverpool in the early hours of
Christmas morning.

He faced Parramatta Bail Court charged with driving while disqualified,
entering a vehicle without the consent of the owner and possessing
implements to enter and drive a vehicle.

Police prosecutor Clint Nasr told the court Dean had a ``shocking'' traffic
record dating back to 1980, including 57 high-range drink-driving offences.

Magistrate Garry Still refused bail.
