Driving with a Suspended License

Drivers License Suspension and Revocation. If you are caught driving with a suspended license you could be facing arrest and criminal prosecution. There are two different driving with a suspended license charges with knowledge and without. If it is without knowledge then you will get a ticket that will result in points on your driving record.

If the Officer determines that you had knowledge of the suspension then it is a criminal charge that you can be arrested for or given a citation to appear in court.

Be very careful with these charges because they are Enhanceable which means that the first one is a second degree misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 60 days in jail.

A second one can be upgraded to a first degree misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a third and subsequent offense could be charged as a third degree felony which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a loss of your civil rights.

Something additional to consider is that if you get three driving with a suspended license charges (criminal or civil) within a period of five years you could lose your license for 5 years as a habitual traffic offender.   So even if you just get a ticket for driving with a suspended license without knowledge it will count against you if you pay it and get the points on your record.

If you get a ticket for anything it is always smart to call an attorney to discuss how it can impact you before you just go and pay it.
