Amanda Bynes is on probation.

The 27-year-old actress reached a plea deal on Thursday in the case in which she was charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended license.

Bynes, who was not present at the Los Angeles Superior Court hearing in Burbank, California, was sentenced to three years of probation and a $1,400 fine for the violations last year.

Bynes's legal troubles began in March 2012, when police pulled her over for talking on a hand-held phone while driving and she sped away. She was arrested for suspicion of DUI the following month.

Her streak of bad driving continued in September, when she was charged with two hit-and-run accidents in April and August, and her license was finally suspended. She continued to drive, however, and was later charged with driving on a suspended license.

In April, at an earlier hearing in the case, the plea deal reportedly could not be reached because Bynes had failed to sign the paperwork her attorney needed.

The "What a Girl Wants" star still has to deal with her DUI charge.

In addition to her legal woes, Bynes has recently displayed odd behavior. She regularly posts shocking messages and photos on Twitter and has drastically changed her appearance.

Regardless, the former Nickelodeon star has insisted that she's never been better.

"I am doing amazing," she told People in September. "I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line."
