What Are The Potential Sentences?
Although driving on a suspended license and driving with no valid driver’s license sound similar, they are different offenses. NVDL is when someone who does not have a driver’s license operates a motor vehicle. It is the less serious charge and can result in a fine of up to $500 and up to 60 days in jail.
DWLS is when a driver with a suspended or revoked license continues to operate a motor vehicle. Driving with a suspended or revoked license can result in an even longer suspension – or a permanent revocation, in some circumstances. DWLS can result in the following penalties:
- First offense: A misdemeanor charge with a fine of up to $500 and up to 60 days in jail.
- Second offense: A misdemeanor charge with a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail.
- Third offense: A felony charge with up to $5,000 and up to five years in jail.
