Driving without a license is illegal in every state, but most states differentiate between operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license and driving a vehicle without proof of a driver’s license (such as when a driver fails to carry his or her valid driver’s license).

Penalties for driving without a valid license or failing to produce a license when stopped by a police officer range from “fix-it tickets” to vehicle impoundment or even jail time (for habitually driving on a suspended license, for example).

Penalties for Driving Without a License

Failure to produce a valid driver’s license when asked by a police officer can lead to a number of penalties depending on the circumstances. Charges typically fall into one of two categories: correctable offenses and willful violations.

Types of Driver Licensing Violations

A motorist may violate a driver’s license requirement in a number of ways; Perhaps it was an honest mistake (i.e. he left his driver’s license at home) or maybe there was an attempt to circumvent a known driving restriction (i.e. willingly drove despite knowing that his license was suspended for DUI.)

Here are the most common types of violations related to driver’s licenses:

  • Failing to apply for a state-issued drivers license within the time allowed
  • Driving with an expired license
  • Driving with suspended license
  • Driving with a license that has been permanently revoked
  • Failing to show proof of a valid license when driving or operating a vehicle

Correctable Offenses

Simply forgetting to carry your driver’s license while driving a vehicle may lead to a “fix-it ticket,” wherein you must later show proof that you fixed the violation in order to have the citation dismissed by the traffic court. Failure to present this evidence typically leads to fines or other penalties.

Willful Violations

Penalties for willful violations of licensing requirements, such as driving after license suspension or revoked license, are much more serious. Driver’s license suspension occurs frequently for DUI offenses, unpaid driving infractions, and unpaid criminal court fines. Therefore, when a driver willfully drives after license suspension or with a revoked driver’s license, he or she may be cited, arrested, and charged for a misdemeanor offense.
In Washington state, you may receive a jail sentence if a judge determines that you are a habitual offender.  A habitual offender is a person who repeatedly commits the same offense.  Receiving multiple tickets for driving while your license is suspended will eventually lead to jail time being imposed.

It is important to note the distinction between a paralegal and an attorney. Paralegals are able to assist in the creation of various legal documents, drafting for different processes, and act in several other vital support roles, but they are not able to provide legal advice. State law requires that all paralegals refrain from offering counsel, advice, and guidance on legal matters. Should you wish to engage someone for those services, you should contact an attorney-at-law.
