TWO young Hamilton drivers will be off the road and out of pocket after being caught drink-driving on Sunday morning.

A 19-year-old Hamilton woman was stopped by police in the Hamilton CBD at 8am and produced a blood alcohol reading of .02.

The P-plater’s licence will be cancelled and she received a penalty notice worth $396.

She will be ineligible to regain her licence for three months.

Less than two hours later, a 23-year-old Hamilton man was intercepted in the Hamilton area by the highway patrol.

The man returned a blood alcohol reading of .09.

His licence was automatically cancelled for six months.

He also received a penalty notice worth $476.
