What Happens If You Are Caught Driving With A Suspended License?

The legal system sees license suspension and revocation as a serious step toward combating unsafe driving on the roads. It is not an action that the courts take lightly. If you no longer have a license due to suspension or revocation and yet you continue to drive, you can face substantial state sanctions, including fines, further suspension, and even jail time.

The Consequences Are More Serious Than You May Think

Driving with a suspended license is a serious violation that can lead to consequences like:

  • Up to 90 days in jail, depending upon the number of offenses
  • House arrest, also called “home suspension”
  • License plate revocation
  • Substantial court fines and fees

If you have a civil case, pending immigration case, or a family law conflict, the court will consider your offense and hold it against you. This can jeopardize your immigration standing or prevent you from obtaining child custody. It can also prevent you from license reinstatement and permanently damage your driving record.
