Heather Locklear pleaded no contest to reckless driving in a Santa Barbara, Calif., court Friday, and in exchange, a DUI charge was dismissed, a source close to the case confirms.

As part of the plea deal with prosecutors, Locklear was sentenced to three years' informal probation, was fined $700 and must complete a 12-hour DMV road and safety class. The actress was not present in court. Her attorney, Blair Berk, declined to comment on the case.

In November, Locklear, 47, had been formally charged with driving under the influence of drugs following a September arrest in which a 911 caller described her as "driving erratically."
