The wife of former Queensland MP Scott Driscoll has pleaded guilty to dishonesty offences.

Emma Jane Driscoll was given no punishment over three charges of knowingly giving an official document that was false and misleading.

The 43-year-old wife of the former Liberal National Party member for Redcliffe entered guilty pleas in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Driscoll was given a suspended sentence and community order in September after admitting eight counts of fraudulently falsifying a record and three counts of making false declarations.

They relate to inaccurate minutes for meetings created for the Queensland Retail Traders and Shopkeepers Association.

She was given no further punishment for the three latest charges as they are connected to the same incident and false supporting documents she submitted in 2012.

Scott Driscoll resigned from the Queensland parliament in November 2013, citing poor health, after the parliament's ethics committee recommended he be expelled for failing to declare interests and also misleading the House.
