Justin Bieber has been driving in Cali without a license all this time

Justin Bieber

It seems strange that we haven’t heard much from Justin Bieber in awhile, right? Well, he vacationed in Barbados (and swam with the sharks) for several days. He then returned to California a few days ago and headed into the studio with Pharrell. Justin tweeted his approval of Pharrell by calling him a “#greatguy.” This seems to be a standard compliment from Bieber, who famously called Anne Frank “a great girl” a few months ago.

Of course, this little dude wouldn’t be Justin Bieber if he wasn’t doing dumb things. The kid got busted yesterday morning while ignoring a stop sign in Calabasas. When the cops pulled him over, they discovered that Bieber doesn’t even have a California driver’s license, so they made him stop driving. This is kind of unreal, right? Biebs has been speeding all over the place and causing all sorts of mayhem with his vehicle, and cops never bothered to check his driving credentials until now:

Justin Bieber was pulled over in Calabasas this morning for driving like an a-hole — and during the stop, cops discovered the pop star shouldn’t have been on the road in the first place … ’cause he’s NOT licensed to drive in California, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us … cops noticed Justin’s white Ferrari blowing through a stop sign near his Calabasas home around 4:30 AM Wednesday morning.

We’re told Justin was cooperative during the stop — but cops noticed that JB did not have a valid California driver’s license, something new residents of the state are required to have within 10 days of moving to CA.

FYI — Justin bought his Calabasas home at the end of June.

Sources say Justin was cited for running the stop sign and for driving without a valid California License. JB was ordered to get out of the driver’s seat — and his passenger was allowed to drive the car home.

If Justin wants to get back behind the wheel — he’ll be required to hit up the DMV first and obtain the proper CA driver’s license … and if he wants to make that happen by the end of the day, he should probably get in line now.

Of course this kid didn’t bother to get a driver’s license when he moved to Cali, but you’d think that someone in his entourage would have been aware of the 10-day rule. I remember even Victoria Beckham went and got her license right away (I watched her reality series, don’t judge) when she moved to Los Angeles. But the rules don’t apply to Bieber, apparently … until now.

Oh, and here’s another interesting little tidbit if you’re feeling masochistic enough: Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus (along with Lil Twist) have recorded a song together! I actually thought this song was a joke at first, but it actually exists and is called “Twerk.” Enjoy.

When I saw this photo on the Bieb’s Instagram, I thought he was wearing a grill, but fortunately, zoom revealed that he hasn’t gone there. But it will happen, just watch.

    So tired of this punk and his “look, I’m stoned!” selfies.

  2. mytbean says:

    Oh God… Biebs and Cyrus united for “Twerk”?… Sigh. (checks the horizon for encroaching locust plague).

  3. Sixer says:

    Blimey. Driving without a licence in the UK is prosecutable. Big fines as it invalidates your insurance, so you’re also driving without insurance. If you added to that speeding/driving without due care and attention/failing to stop at a red light, you’d probably get a ban and a VERY BIG fine.

    • Amelia says:

      Unfortunately this is Bieber and California we’re talking about.
      The State that seemed intent on letting the Cracken keep causing mayhem and destruction with no repercussions whatsoever.
      *sigh* Poor show by the sharks. They could have at least tried to nibble a toe . . .

    • Sixer says:

      Hereabouts, we have perennial headlines about drunk/bad/dangerous driving by star soccer players. But they do generally make it to court.

    • duchessofhazard says:

      Yeah, and not to mention in the UK, your licence should have your current address, too. If you don’t it’s a helluva fine as well. So Bieber is driving on a dodgy licence because his address won’t be current. Yikes. They’d have thrown the book at him over here, celebrity or no.

  4. crab says:

    Why does he always crinkle up his forehead like that? Dude gonna need botox by the time he’s 21!

  5. booboocita says:

    All I can figure is, Lil Twist must have access to the really good sh*t for Miley and Justin to give him top billing on the single. Good grief, that “song” is terrible.

  6. Falula says:

    I am no Bieber defender but it at least sounds like he has a license somewhere, just not in CA. I am guilty of waiting longer than 10 days when I move to a new state, too.

    I feel dirty for having something in common with this dude.

    • megs283 says:

      Yeah – definitely didn’t realize that was a law…I (though I don’t like in California, so maybe it’s a state-by-state thing).

      • Hakura says:

        @megs283 – “Yeah – definitely didn’t realize that was a law…I (though I don’t like in California, so maybe it’s a state-by-state thing).

        I think it is a state-by-state thing… I live in Maryland, but spent a summer (around 2 1/2-3 months) staying w/my grandparents in North Carolina, where I learned to drive (at 18) & got my license.

        I came home (to MD), & really didn’t even think about changing my driver’s license over, but never had any problems using the NC license. (I was pulled over once for speeding, but it wasn’t but 5-7mph over, so after checking my license, the officer just let me off with a warning.)

    • duchessofhazard says:

      Unlike you, Bieber has people to do these things for him though.

      • Migdalia says:

        I don’t know in what state in this country someone ELSE can get your driver’s license for you O_o…in CA you have to submit docs, get a fingerprint scan and retake your written test for an out of state license holder. It’s such a hassle.

    • Migdalia says:

      +1 not to defend Beiber, but I waited almost a year and some months since moving to CA to get my CA license. It should have been, but it’s not like it was priority number one. I know the kid is way busier than me so it’s easy just to be like “well I have a valid license from somewhere so my butt better not get pulled over” lol.

    • tealily says:

      Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too… since when does not having a license issued by the state you are in mean you are not able to drive there? That sounds odd to me.

  7. ccinkissimmee says:

    He’s just so darn cute!

  8. gg says:

    That header picture – looks like he’s at a peen surgeon’s going, “Hey doc, I want one like THIS.”

  9. ray says:

    shame he didnt get eaten by the sharks

  10. Steph says:

    I could only make it through ten seconds of that song. But it did hit me that Miley and baby Bieber might be perfect for each other. Maybe as a couple they would implode and thus no longer exist.

  11. janie says:

    No license? How many times has he been pulled over by cops? Not one ran a check? If this wasn’t so pathetic, it would be funny.

    • Migdalia says:

      Driving without a CA license is not the same as not having a license at all. They just get pretty douchey about you getting one when you get pulled over. Apparently your car can get impounded and everything.

  12. Bex says:

    All those times no one checked…Ugh. I’m sure he won’t have to wait in line at the DMV. Remember when Britney was driving to every gas station in Socal and they told her to get licensed someone came out to her car to take care of her?

  13. snappyfish says:

    he looks like the love child of hilary swank and dylan from “beverly hills 90210.”

  14. Misery Fox says:

    But..but… where is the Baby Bieber/ Car seat photo?? 🙁

    That photo is the main reason I love these posts on the Abominable Man-child.

  15. Zombie Shortcake says:

    I wonder if he was driving around with an international license and figured that was enough.
