Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License

The misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license is one of the most common motor vehicle crimes that is charged.

For the first offense, a driver faces up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine, or both, in addition to two points assessed on the driver’s license, and a $500 driver’s responsibility fee to be paid for two consecutive years.

Upon the second offense or subsequent offenses, a driver faces jail time of up to one year, a $1,000 fine, or both, in addition to two points assessed on the license, and a $500 driver’s responsibility fee to be paid for two consecutive years.

The period of license suspension or revocation may increase for an amount of time that depends upon the driver’s current license status. Vehicle immobilization or impoundment may follow a conviction. Involvement in accidents involving injury or death will increase the seriousness of the charge and the penalties.
