Pete Doherty banned from driving

The Babyshambles singer gets fined too

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty has been fined £300 and disqualified from driving for two months.

The star was also fined £200 for driving without insurance, £100 for driving without a dricing licence plus £55 costs.

District Judge Jane McIvor warned the singer that he faces jail if he drives without a licence again.

Doherty’s defence counsel Sean Curran said he was eligible for a licence, but had not applied for one after passing his driving test.

He said: “Mr Doherty accepts that he was driving with no licence and insurance. He had left the task of getting an insurance policy in the hands on one of his managers, who hadn’t done so.”

Doherty admitted two charges of driving without insurance or a licence at Thames Magistrates Court in London.

Two other driving related charges were dropped.

He was arrested in November 2006 by officers who spotted him driving his Jaguar erratically near his east London home, reports the BBC.
