The court was told Doherty thought his manager was insured to drive
Musician Pete Doherty has been banned from driving for 12 months after admitting allowing his manager to use his Daimler car without insurance.
His lawyer entered the guilty plea to magistrates in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
It relates to an incident in Hadleigh, Suffolk, last September, in which a pedestrian was critically injured.
Doherty's manager Andrew Boyd, 42, of London, admitted dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident and was jailed for 12 months.
Boyd also admitted driving without a licence or insurance during a hearing at Ipswich Crown Court last month.
Previous driving ban
Chris Corder, 43, of Hadleigh, Suffolk, suffered "catastrophic" brain injuries and was left in a coma after the crash, the court heard.
The court was told Boyd's four-year-old son was in the back of the car at the time.
Police later found the car in a body repair shop in London.
Magistrates were told that Doherty, of Marlborough, Wiltshire, had been given a 18-month driving ban and a £2,050 fine in December at Gloucester Crown Court after admitting careless and drink-driving.
Lawyers said the two bans would run concurrently and Doherty would not be able to re-apply for a licence until the 18-month ban had ended.
Bruce Clark, for Doherty, said the singer, who is 31 on Friday, had believed that Boyd was insured. He said Boyd had also thought that he was insured.
Lowestoft magistrates also fined the Babyshambles singer £500.
