What Happens If You Drive with a Suspended License?
There are a number of reasons you may have a suspended license. For example, perhaps you have a number of unpaid tickets, an expired license, or underage possession of alcohol. If your license is suspended, you may feel tempted to drive anyway. First, find out what may happen.
Driving with a Suspended License
Even if your license is suspended for a minor offense, driving with a suspended license can have extensive circumstances. You may even end up in jail. So instead of risking it, learn about what you might be getting yourself into:
· Arrested: You are subject to arrest for driving with a suspended license. Sometimes, taking care of the license is an easy task to resolve. And if you violate the terms by driving when you’re not supposed to, you may get in more trouble than you ever intended.
· Further Suspension: In addition, when you drive with a suspended license and get caught, your suspension term will extend even longer. You will never get a valid license by driving with a suspended license. Be sure to go through the proper channels to get your license back to the active status before driving.
Knowing about the possible consequences will help you think again before driving with a suspended license. Think about it – you do not want to spend time in jail because you don’t want to ask someone for a ride.
How to Resolve a Suspended License
If your license is suspended for a reason like unpaid parking tickets or unpaid child support, you may think that once the debts are paid, your license will be back on the road. Consult with a lawyer before taking any action. For example, if you pay parking tickets, you are essentially pleading guilty to the charges, which could result in a suspended license anyway.
