Ipswich man Dobri Dobrev has been jailed after receiving his third conviction in six months for driving while disqualified.
The 23-year-old was serving a suspended prison sentence for driving while disqualified when he was pulled over by police in Saxmundham.
He was handed a 16 week term of imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, along with a 23-month driving ban and 140 hours of unpaid work.
Dobrev was originally disqualified for accumulating 14 penalty points on his licence.
Magistrates activated the suspended sentence in full and added another 18 weeks' custody for the latest offence of driving while disqualified.
He was jailed for 34 weeks and told he will be due for release on licence after serving half the period behind bars.
