He had previously been given an eight-week ban on November 4 this year to run through to December 29.
A pre-sentence report stated that a custodial sentence was not advisable for Foster as his mother relies on him to give her medicine for her asthma.
The defence also stressed that unemployed Foster has been attending a training course at the YMCA which instils work ethics into its students.
It was also highlighted that Foster's Mondeo is now in the hands of the police.
Magistrates sentenced Foster with conditional discharge and he will now have to complete a community rehabilitation order and do 80 hours work for a community punishment order.
He was also ordered to pay £55 towards prosecution costs.
Magistrates warned Foster that if he committed another offence it was likely that he would be put behind bars.
