A 34-year-old P-plate driver was arrested three times in five hours for alleged drink driving in north-western NSW on New Year's Day.

The man was first pulled over at Narrabri at about 6pm on Sunday after police received complaints from other road users.

Police say the man's driver's licence was suspended and he was given a court attendance notice after allegedly returning a blood alcohol reading of 0.136, nearly three times the legal limit.

But less than two hours later he was allegedly spotted driving the same station wagon, again at Narrabri and police say he returned another mid-range blood alcohol reading.

The man was taken back to the same police station and further charged with drink driving and driving while suspended.

He was bailed on the condition he stay off the roads, but police say about 10.20pm the same car was pulled over about 8km north of Narrabri.

It's alleged the man returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.097 and was taken into custody after being charged with drink driving, driving while suspended and breach of bail.

The man was due to face the Moree Local Court on Monday.
