In December she was slapped with a six-month driving ban after she was clocked speeding.
And without her Range Rover or pink horsebox to drive around, Katie Price may be missing the thrill of the road.
The model got a taste of a running engine today, though, when she took delivery of a brand new scooter.

The customised 125cc vehicle is suitable painted a candy pink, and has Price’s equestrian logo on the side.
Workmen turned up at the 32-year-old’s Surrey home today to hand over the scooter, which retails for around £849.
The reality star was clearly looking forward to her special delivery.
She tweeted last night: ‘I have to be up early too princess be home junior at school harvey day off and I get my pink crystal scooter arriving too wooo exciting (sic).’
Patience: The 32-year-old mode, pictured in Hollywood last week,l will have to wait until her driving ban is lifted before she can drive it
With two of her three children at home today when the scooter arrived
it is likely there was much excitement in the Price household.
course, Katie will be unable to take her new wheels for a spin outside
of her estate until after her driving ban is lifted in June.
So she’ll have to stick to the vast expanse of her Surrey home until that day comes.
Katie’s spokesman confirmed that the model has no plans to take the vehicle out on the open road until she is legally able.
Easy does it: The customised pink vehicle was unloaded carefully by the delivery men

Before the hearing in December Price had already accumulated ten penalty points and more than £2000 in fines for speeding and careless driving.
Back in June 2008 she got three points for talking on her mobile phone while driving.
In July this year she was given four more after being clocked speeding at 99mph.
And in September she was given three points for not being in proper control of a vehicle after veering across motorway lanes in her 7.5-ton pink horsebox, taking her tally to ten.
Excited: Price, in LA last week, tweeted that she was looking forward to the delivery and that Princess and Harvey would be at home to see the scooter arrive
On that occasion she told astonished magistrates: ‘I’m just a typical woman driver’.
Katie arrived back from a whirlwind trip to Los Angeles this week, where she is believed to have signed a deal to release an autobiographical film about her life.
Katie let her hair down at Elton John’s Oscars party on Sunday night, and also took part in an OK! USA magazine shoot.
