She was also handed a £500 fine and ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge and £85 in prosecution costs.
Harding's lawyer Nick Freeman had tried to argue that the Call The Shots singer used her mobile because she was lost on her way to a business meeting when police caught her.
However, when delivering the verdict, Judge Nina Tempia addressed Freeman and said: "He is asking the court to deal with you as opposed to a normal person.

Harding is yet to comment on the incident.
