What Happens if I’m Caught Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License?

Each year, thousands of drivers get behind the wheel with a suspended driver’s license. Some know they are committing this infraction, while others do so without even realizing their license has been suspended. Whatever the case, if you are caught driving with a suspended license you could face serious consequences if you do not have the appropriate legal representation.

Potential Consequences of Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License

If your driver’s license is suspended, it is important that you renew it right away and do not operate any motor vehicle. While your record may be clean of any driving offenses, driving with a suspended license is illegal and could cost you. These are just a few of the potential consequences of driving with a suspended license:

Fines of up to $250 or More Depending on Past Offenses
Two Points Added to Your License
Higher Insurance rates
Impounded Car
Increased License Suspension
Probation
Incarceration

Possible Defenses

Although driving with a suspended driver’s license is illegal, if you are accused of doing so, there are a few possible defense strategies. Although it is a driver’s responsibility to know when their driver’s license is suspended, we all make mistakes. Sometimes a driver may honestly have not known their license was suspended, while sometimes a driver may have not completed the necessary renewal paper on time. In many situations, a charge for driving with a suspended license may be reduced or dismissed with an experienced legal professional on your side. Whatever the case, a good attorney will be able to effectively defend your rights and provide the best defense strategy possible.
