Britney must face trial for driving without a licence

Singer Britney Spears has failed in a last-ditch attempt to stop her driving without a licence case going to trial.

The star’s lawyers had hoped to avoid having to go back to court by getting the case put on hold or dismissed.

But a ruling released yesterday means the trial will go ahead on October 15, with a pre-trial hearing scheduled for later today.

The ruling from Los Angeles Superior Court says: 'The 'Request for Stay; Petition for Wit of Prohibition and Writ of Mandate' and opposition thereto, having been read and considered by this court, is hereby denied.'

Britney is accused of not having a valid California driver's license when she bumped into another car in her Mercedes Benz in August last year.

Her lawyer Michael Flanagan argues she was driving with a Louisiana license that was valid because she owns homes in that state.

Flanagan was hoping to have the case dismissed and for Britney to pay a $10 fee.

She was caught on camera bumping into the other car and driving off without leaving a note.

She was seen checking the damage to her own car from the fender-bender.

The owner of the other car filed a police report and Britney was charged with misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving without a valid license.

But the hit-and-run charges were dismissed in October last year after the chart-topper paid an undisclosed sum to the other driver.

The Department of Motor Vehicles confirmed Britney had never been issued a California license, even though she has had homes in LA for years.

State law requires drivers to apply for a license within 10 days of moving to California.
