An elderly Australian man continues to get behind the wheel despite being disqualified from driving until 2090.

Nathaniel Samuel Barker, 76, has appeared in court more than 28 times on driving-related charges.

His most recent appearance was in Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court yesterday, when he pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified.

He was driving in the inner-Sydney suburb of Alexandria in March when police caught him making two left turns without indicating.

The court facts stated Barker told police he didn't indicate because he "was just driving around the corner".

He then told them he was disqualified from driving, but was just trying to help his partner fill the car with petrol.

He will be sentenced in August, but is already disqualified from driving for the next 76 years.
