What is the Statute?
A person whose driving privilege has been denied, suspended, disqualified, or revoked under any laws of the state and who drives any motor vehicle upon the highways or roads of this state while that driving privilege is denied, suspended, disqualified, or revoked, is guilty of driving on a revoked or suspended license.
If you are in control of a vehicle when your license has been suspended or revoked, you could face serious fines and even jail time.
What is the Punishment?
If found to be driving with a revoked or suspended license, it can be charged as a class C misdemeanor. However, it can be charged as a class B misdemeanor if the reason your license has been suspended is because of a refusal to take a chemical test, your suspension had been extended, or you were found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both.
A class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.00.
A class C misdemeanor is punishable by imprisonment for up to 90 days and a fine of not more than $750.
