Definition of Driving without a License

Driving without a license is a violation of section 509 of the Vehicle Traffic Code and carries a penalty of a fine between $75 to $300 or jail time of up to 15 days or both.

Driving without a license may involve the following:

  • Underage drivers
  • Drivers who have failed to renew a license
  • Drivers without a valid license with them while driving

If it is a case of not renewing a valid license within 60 days of its expiration, the fine is generally $40.

Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License

  • If you are stopped and cited for driving with a suspended or revoked license, this is a more serious matter. This offense is a criminal violation which carries mandatory fines of $200 to $5000.

You may also be subject to the following:

  • Imprisonment
  • Probation
  • Having your vehicle impounded

An aggravated unlicensed operation (AUO) charge occurs when you are stopped by a police officer because your license has been suspended or revoked earlier, whether you were aware of it or not, due to an unresolved traffic offense.

Depending on why you have been stopped, you can be charged with an AUO in the first, second or third degree, which is a misdemeanor. First and second-degree charges are often alcohol-related or are multiple suspensions, which can result in severe penalties.
