Lee Daniel Fenwick, 34, of Spencer Street, Jarrow, was imprisoned for 10 weeks by magistrates after he admitted two charges each of driving while disqualified and without insurance in South Shields.
The incidents took place in Gresford Street on July 12 and on the A194 on August 18.
South Tyneside Magistrates Court jailed him for eight weeks in total for the motoring offences while adding an extra fortnight after he also admitted breaching the terms of a previous sentence by twice failing to attend scheduled appointments.
The court noted that his offending was “aggravated by being committed while subject to a community sentence”.
Fenwick, who was also banned from driving for a year and ordered to pay a £128 victim surcharge and £85 cost, is now on unconditional bail until he awaits the outcome of his appeal at Newcastle Crown Court.
