The 49-year-old made a brief appearance in front of a community magistrate at Auckland District Court.
Police allege he was driving a Fat Bob Harley Davidson motorbike on June 21 while suspended. King has pleaded not guilty.
Asked what he was doing in court, King said he was there for a "driving offence'' but declined to comment further.
His lawyer, Kahungunu Barron-Afeaki, said he could not comment on the case.
King did not return calls, but his agent David Steele said the incident "didn't involve alcohol''.
"It's certainly nothing to do with drink driving at all. And it's nothing to do with road rage either.''
King left an expletive-filled message for the writers of Eating Media Lunch after they lampooned his show Mike King Live and has spoken of his three-day cocaine binge in a Hong Kong hotel room.
He was remanded on bail to reappear in September.
