Facing Criminal Prosecution For Driving With A Suspended Or Revoked License? We Can Help.
Knowingly driving with a revoked or suspended license within the state of California is a criminal offense, and those caught doing so can expect to be prosecuted. Claiming ignorance in such a case rarely helps. If the DMV provides evidence of mailing a notification that a license has been suspended or revoked, you are considered legally responsible.
Driving in California with a revoked or suspended license is not taken lightly and can lead to serious consequences. Depending on the circumstances, you could be labeled a “habitual driving offender,” which could eventually result in the revocation of your California driving privileges.
Those found driving with a suspended or revoked license while on probation face a case of “Probation Violation” and possible imprisonment.
Other legal repercussions of driving with a suspended or revoked license may include:
- Jail time
- Significant fines
- Black spot on driving and criminal records
- Revocation of California driving privileges
