Johnny Ruffo banned from driving for two years

Australian soap star Johnny Ruffo has been banned from the roads for two years for a string of driving offences.
The Home and Away star pleaded guilty to five charges, including driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, driving while disqualified, and not paying taxes, in January (16).
The 27-year-old was handed fines, which totalled $2,220 (£1,600), at Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney, Australia on Thursday (25Feb16).
Deputy Chief Magistrate Jane Mottley also disqualified him from the roads for a total of 24 months for two instances of driving while his licence was suspended.
His lawyer Nic Angelov said the actor has now realised he is unfit to drive and will be selling his vehicle. He told reporters, “His intention is to get the vehicle registered and then sell it… He’s going to get rid of the car… He accepts that the responsibilities (of driving) he has not met, and they are not for him.”
