By Amber GoodhandRadar Staff Reporter

Teen Mom star Gary Shirley is back behind the wheel.

The 24-year-old father appeared in the Anderson County Circuit courthouse Thursday morning where a judge granted him a hardship driver’s license that will allow him to be able to drive again, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Gary had his driver’s license suspended last November after receiving a seatbelt violation and driving while uninsured.

But that didn’t stop Gary from driving and he was arrested on May 24, 2011 on a Class A misdemeanor for driving with a suspended license.

“The judge’s signed order now has to be approved by the Anderson DMV, which is expected to happen within the next week or so,” Gary’s attorney, Jeff Lockwood, told RadarOnline.com.

“Once approved, he can only drive in the course of his employment and to make sure things pertaining to Leah are taken care of.”

Gary currently has primary custody of Leah, the two-year-old daughter he had with controversial baby mama, Amber Portwood.

Amber, 21, recently announced she would be entering a California rehab treatment center after being released from a 72-hour psychiatric hold at an Indian hospital because of an attempted suicide.

“Once the hardship license is granted, we expect Gary will have his license fully restored in 90 days,” Lockwood concluded.
