Driving on a Suspended License
One of the most common reasons for a driver's license to be suspended is as a result of being convicted of a DUI charge. Suspension is typically set for a period of time and once that period is complete then the individual will be able to have their driving abilities reinstated. In order to regain the privilege, a driver must adhere to regulations such as not driving during the duration of the suspension. For a number of reasons and individual may find it necessary to drive even without a valid license.
Consequences of Driving Without a Valid License
The penalties for those found to be driving with a suspended license are often very harsh, and can severely affect personal freedoms. If you are convicted of driving with a suspended license, you may suffer such penalties as imprisonment for five days to six months, and a fine of $300 to $1000. If you are convicted a second time of driving with a suspended license within five years of your first conviction, you may face ten days to one year in county jail, and a fine of $500 to $2000.
