Learner driver Lisa McDermott (36) of 33 Woodview in Castlebridge was caught on the road without a qualified driver.
Garda Trevor McCormack told the District Court how he stopped her Mayo-registered car at Raheenagurren East on July 15 last.
The tax on the vehicle was not up to date and this merited a fine of €50.
Judge John Brennan learned that Ms McDermott had a previous conviction on her record for a similar lack of accompanying qualified driver.
With this in mind a €100 fine was handed down.
