He tried unsuccessfully to find a friend to accompany him and "made a hasty decision" to drive unsupervised because he was "desperate" and "stressed", he said.
He told the court he had been offered the speed awareness course by the police after an earlier incident in which he had broken a 30mph speed limit.
Presiding magistrate Wendy Bomberg warned Klejnglas he was not safe to be on the road.
Klejnglas was fined £115, banned from driving for two months and ordered to pay £40 costs and a Government-imposed £15 victims' surcharge.
