Lara Bingle will have to rely on her reality TV sidekick Hermione to drive her around for the next year after a judge suspended her license for a further 12 months today.

The Aussie model, whose show Being Lara Bingle was recently axed, appeared in a Sydney court today facing a potential jail sentence for driving infringements.

She made headlines in May when she was accused of leaving the scene of an accident without identifying herself to the motorcyclist who was injured in the collision with her Range Rover in Bondi.

The 26-year-old had been driving on a suspended license after being booked for speeding six times since the beginning of the year.

Magistrate Robbie Williams told her, "I think you should by now realise how serious this offense is.

"The facts are concerning in a number of ways - certainly the court has to be concerned with the fact that there was a collision and you left the scene.

"There was no doubt you were aware that your license was suspended."

Lara was fined $3,500, given an 18-month good behaviour bond and banned from driving for 12 months.
