LOOSE Women star Katie Price was recently caught driving while banned from getting behind the wheel.
Cops are currently investigating the 40-year-old star after she drove home from Gatwick. But here’s what Katie is likely to face as punishment.
What happens if you drive while banned?
Being disqualified means you cannot drive any vehicle on any road or public highway.
Driving whilst disqualified is a criminal offence and those accused of committing this offence often find themselves being charged as opposed to being summonsed.
You are likely to be prosecuted both for driving while disqualified and driving without insurance and will probably have to attend court.
Courts often impose a custodial sentence, with a six month sentence.
At the bottom of the scale a court can impose a fine up to 26 weeks banged up behind bars.
Previously offences are likely to be taken into account in determining the sentence.
Do you get more points on your licence?
Offenders can get another six penalty points added on to their licence but it is far more likely the court will impose another extended period of disqualification.
Some 14,500 people were caught driving without a licence last year, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency data indicates.
In total, 109,660 motorists were banned from driving, with the youngest being 12 and the oldest 94.
Are you insured?
It is considered to be null and void.
No insurance company would have a disqualified driver as the policy holder.
