What can happen if I am charged with Driving on a Suspended or Revoked License?
Generally, a person who drives or is in actual physical control of a vehicle while his or her driver’s license privileges are suspended or revoked is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. A person who is convicted of driving while their license is suspended shall have an extension of the suspension for the same period of time as the originally imposed suspension.
Are there different rules if my Suspension or Revocation was a result of a DUI or Summary Statutory Suspension/Revocation?
Yes, there are special rules if the person who commits this crime is suspended or revoked due to a DUI, a statutory summary suspension or revocation, or a leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injury or death. The consequences of driving while suspended or revoked for a first offense would then include a minimum of 10 consecutive days in jail or 30 days of community service. They can also include the seizure of the license plates of the person’s vehicle, the forfeiture of the person’s vehicle, and other serious consequences, such as becoming a convicted felon and, depending on the circumstances, sometimes are not even probationable.
