Dave Hughes has revealed the harsh reality he’s had to face since being unable to drive.

The comedian, 52, has had his driver’s license suspended for three months due to speeding and has been forced to catch public transport everywhere he goes.

Speaking on his radio show, Hughesy Ed and Erin, on Wednesday morning, Dave revealed the challenges he deals with now that he has to travel with his kids via bus, train, or light rail/tram to take them to school and their sports games.

He recalled the moment he caught the light rail with his daughter Tess, 10, to her basketball game, when a group of high school girls boarded.

‘We’re sitting there, and then about six school girls got on and sat opposite us,’ he recalled.

‘Feet on seats, just lazing about. Just owning the light rail… I feel like not respecting [the space].

‘And then they just start swearing really loudly. I’m right there… Tess starts giggling…’

The Masked Singer judged then asked if he should have ‘turned to these girls and said “Mind your language.”‘

‘I’ve got some impressionable, primary school-aged children, girls, with me. Mind your language, you high-school hoodlums,’ he added.

Dave said in the end that he didn’t say anything to the teens and let them continue.

Back in August, the Melbourne-based personality revealed how he lost his driver’s license.

‘I’m not a drink driver, I don’t even drink,’ he said on the radio show two months ago.

‘And I’m not a mad speeder… I don’t do any drugs, don’t even do marijuana. Completely sober.

‘But, doing 46 kilometres per hour in 40 [km per hour] zones, you do that often enough, you get a point, a point, a point, a point, a point, and they’re all gone.’

Dave added that he attempted to try the ‘double or nothing method’ used in Victoria, but it was long past the time he could apply.

‘They didn’t acknowledge that I was a celebrity. I just used my voice, she knew,’ he said of the VicRoads staff member he contacted.

‘I didn’t even get a chance. Nup, not happening.’
