Suspended License Conviction Consequences

Part of the definition of driving with a suspended license is that you willfully drove when you knew your license had been suspended. If you failed to receive notice of such a suspension, that would constitute a valid defense.

Since driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor, it can involve time spent in a county jail as well as a fine and two points added to your DMV record.

A first offense can carry the following penalties:

  • Five days to six months of jail time
  • Fines of $300 to $1,000

If you are convicted of a second suspended license offense within a five- to seven-year period, the penalties will be enhanced. Additionally, you will now have a permanent criminal record that can hamper future opportunities, such as for housing, employment, financial aid, and more.

Trying to handle your misdemeanor charge by yourself is not recommended when you are unfamiliar with the legal system, its procedures, rules, and court personnel. Our firm has handled countless cases involving traffic infractions and misdemeanors, which will give you the advantage you need in fighting back.
