A NSW father on his p-plates who allegedly drove drunk to a police station to collect his daughter after she was caught boozed up behind the wheel has been nabbed for drink driving twice more in 24 hours.

After his 19-year-old daughter blew 0.016 at Toronto police station on Friday night, the man arrived to collect her only to be breath tested himself.

He was found to have a blood alcohol reading of 0.192.

The 37-year-old was charged and his provisional licence was suspended.

About 13 hours later, at Saturday lunchtime, the man was stopped at a random breath test.

He was taken back to Toronto police station and blew 0.190.

Police charged the man with another high-range drink driving offence.

But about 10 hours later, he was caught for the third time after losing control of his car and driving down the wrong side of the road.

This time he was caught with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.159.

He was given his third high-range drink driving charge.

The man is due before Toronto Local Court in March.
