Noel Gallagher ordered to pay £1,000 speeding ticket but doesn’t even have a license

The former Oasis star has been landed with a hefty fine

Noel Gallagher has been ordered to fork out a whopping £1,000 over a speeding ticket but he doesn’t even have a license.

The former Oasis star has been landed with a pretty hefty fine after failing to identify who was driving his Range Rover above the speed limit in October of last year.

Despite not having a license, after only having one driving lesson back in the golden era of Britpop in the 1990s, Gallagher has been lumped with six penalty points alongside the fine.

Considering the star never actually took his driving test, he has been ordered to pay a court over £1,000 after his vehicle was caught a whole 11mph over the speed limit.

The car was speeding 41mph on a 30mph part of the busy A40 in Edgware Road in west London.

A court official confirmed via Sky News that the 'Wonderwall' hit-maker was made to pay £742 and a £296 victim surcharge, plus £100 in costs resulting in a steep total of £1,138.

The speeding case was handled at Willesden Magistrates' Court earlier this week on Wednesday (31 May).

It was dealt with under the Single Justice Procedure - a process commonly used to deal with minor road traffic and TV licensing offences meaning Gallagher was not required to attend in person.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4 back in April of this year, Gallagher opened up about his history with driving and why he decided to give up on learning the skill after just a single lesson.

He told presenter Zoe Ball: "I have had one driving lesson in the 90s and I was driving round a housing estate in Slough and she [the instructor] said to me, 'if you just indicate and pull over here' - then I pulled over.

"She got out the car she said, 'I'll be back in a minute', she came out with her mum, she drove me to her house.

"Then the local comprehensive bell went and they all came out."

Gallagher added: "This is at the height of Oasis-mania and I was like never, never again."

According to the Evening Standard, the High Flying Birds frontman was contacted about the speeding offence in both October and December 2022 but, as police did not receive a response, he was subsequently found guilty. explains that Single Justice Procedure cases can handled remotely with the official website stating: "If an individual or company has been charged with a minor criminal offence, the case may be decided by a magistrate without going to court."

It adds: "A magistrate will make a decision on your case without your say if you do not respond to your notice within 21 days. You could be found guilty or fined."
