Chris Martin

Emergency DMV Session

After Illegal Driving Exposed

Exclusive Details

0918-scott-martin-dmv-x17Chris Martin has been scootering around L.A. illegally ... sometimes with his kid on the back seat ... but today, the Coldplay singer raced down to the DMV to finally get a valid license to drive in California, TMZ has learned.

Multiple DMV sources tell us ... records show Martin has never obtained a CA driver's license, despite the fact he's been tooling around town on his Vespa for weeks.

The license issue just came to light after his wife Gwyneth Paltrow dangerously cut off a school bus on a Vespa -- while her daughter Apple was on the back seat.  It was later revealed that GP didn't have a motorcycle license at the time of the incident.

Paltrow raced to the DMV days later and passed her tests -- and today, her husband followed suit.

Martin was spotted at the DMV in Santa Monica on Wednesday -- with his Vespa -- and good news, HE PASSED HIS TESTS (we're told) ... so all is well.

Now check your mirrors and proceed with caution.

These two @ssholes are priceless. If Gywneth hadn't been caught on camera almost becoming road kill , along with her precious Apple, and injuring or killing those on the bus, she still would have been scooting around town illegally. And when she appears on The Ellen Show, she doesn't talk about her traffic close call, she's talking about her freakin' pubic hair. Gywneth becomes more and more despicable every day.

I'm hoping that this dumb idiot, and his disgraceful moron of a wife, both crash into each other and die. Win-win!

You can legally drive in the US with a UK license, just as you can drive in Canada with a US license.

So the gossip sites reporting on their scooter antics caused them to go get legal. I guess that's a good thing. Hopefully they learned something that may save their children. Like not to cut off buses. School zones are a nightmare even without scooters zipping in and out.


I think riding a scooter is Gwyneth's way of "breaking bad". She's a bit of an idiot in my opinion, and I hate that she was cast in all the Iron Man movies, though she did okay and didn't detract too much from the movies. But that's mostly because Robery Downey Jr. is so amazing as Iron Man that everyone around him who isn't wearing a superhero's costume just fades in to the background.

In California you actually get a permit after passing a written test and you have many months to self train yourself before needing a license. But you can't ride at night or with passengers.
