James Arthur has been banned from driving for six months.
The 'Say You Won't Let Go' hitmaker has also reportedly been slapped with a £2,000 fine, and will have to pay £255 in legal fees, after failing to reply to a speeding ticket issued by police on June 13 last year when he was caught by cameras exceeding the speed limit in his silver Mercedes-Benz in Hanger Lane, west London.
The 28-year-old singer has had four previous speeding convictions handed to him in the past two years.
And the court heard that James had been convicted for speeding in July 2014 and committed the offence of failing to tell police officers he was driving in June and in December 2015, when he was given 15 points on his licence.
He was since been given six more points, resulting in the six-month ban.
James – who shot to fame after winning the 2012 series of 'The X Factor' – has been in the US promoting his comeback album, 'Back from the Edge', and was unable to attend a court hearing at Willesden Magistrates' Court in London where he was handed the points by Magistrate Clive Bruton.
The pop star had wrote to the court to plead guilty to not telling police officers he was driving and the case was adjourned until Monday (09.01.17).
James is expected to receive a written letter informing him of the band, the fine and fees he is liable to pay for legal costs.
