Wallaby fullback Kurtley Beale can now fully focus on his game, after he had a charge against him dismissed.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Beale was caught illegally driving a car he had been given as an award.
The 22-year-old , who will start at fullback for Australia in the Tri-Nations opener in Sydney on Saturday, was pulled over by police on Oxford Street at Woollahra on March 13 - for driving his turbo charged blue Mazda CX-7 while on his P-plates.
Under New South Wales laws, P-platers (young drivers wear when they first get their drivers licence in Australia) are not allowed to drive "high-performance vehicles".
Appearing in Waverley Local Court Wednesday, Beale's lawyer told the court his client had won the Mazda in 2007 for being the player of the year in the now defunct Australian Rugby Championships.
At the time Beale, who had played that season for the Western Sydney Rams, did not have a licence and gave the car to his grandmother.
The court was told that Beale had no idea the car was a high performance vehicle until police pulled him over and lifted up the bonnet.
He has now traded the car in for a smaller, less powerful model, his lawyer said.
Magistrate Robbie Williams dismissed the charge against Beale, saying he believed the Wallaby had no idea he was breaking the law by driving the car.
"It would also be very difficult to return the vehicle once the award was received," he said.
