Britney Can Drive ... In Louisiana

10/1/2007 4:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears does not have a valid California driver's license -- she does have one in LA, but someone should tell her that LA is Louisiana, not Los Angeles!
Exclusive: Click to Read!
TMZ did some digging and found that Brit has a valid license in her home state of Louisiana, but she doesn't live there. A rep for the DMV tells TMZ that in California, you have 10 days to apply for a license after arriving here as a resident, and Brit never completed the process. Examinations is hard, y'all! She did, however, appear in Louisiana in December of 2005 to renew her license, which is valid through December of 2009.

The L.A. City Attorney recently charged Britney with driving without a license. TMZ caught the unlicensed Spears driving through a Malibu parking lot this past Saturday, surrounded by paparazzi.

Wow....they are taking her down piece by piece. This is truly her wake up call!!

I have mixed emotions in this saga. As long as the kids are properly cared for is what matters at this point. Britney needs to utilize her resources and come to grips with all of this and get back on track!

She's lived in L.A. for two years now. I think she's a resident. Besides,what's so hard about getting a license in Calif? I'll bet now that the kids are going to be gone she'll go balls out partying.

This makes no sense....military and other people can keep residency in other states while living in another. I am thinking because she is from Louisiana that she wanted to keep her residency there. She makes money all over the country....not just in LA. I think many celebrities have residence in their home states and not the state they primarily reside in.....heck lots of them have mutiple homes in multiple states and you can only be a resident of ONE state. Technically she is a licensed driver.......California as usual is grasping at straws here. In our state if they bust you and decide you should be a resident, at that point you have so many days to correct the issue......you are NOT immediately classed as an unlicensed driver and held to criminal charges. Even after the intial warning you have an additional fee you must pay to change the license. Sounds like California is working to get her basically anyway they can and playing by their own set of rules against what others say. Funny they do not clarify what exactly deems one as a resident......so is anyone vacationing there more than ten days a resident who is not allowed to drive even though they have a valid license from another state???

It really doesn't matter where she files her income taxes, or even where she claims to have residency. In order to get a California judge to give her a divorce she had to claim California residency and meet their residential guidelines. Surprise, surprise this makes her a California resident. Whom by law was required to have a California license, not a Louisiana license.

She has enough money to be able to take care of any problems stopping her from getting a license, she just didn't want to deal with it, time she owns up to the responsibility now. She's going down and quickly at this point. She deserves all of her problems, anybody else would have been arrested and stopped by police at this point for driving without a valid California license, instead the police in her area have been kissing her ass and escorting her all over while she drives illegally. Great example from the people who are supposed to enforce the law!!!!!!!!
