Driving on an Invalid License
Palm Beach Traffic Ticket Lawyer
In Florida, it is illegal to drive if you have never been issued a driver's
license, if your license has expired, or if your license was suspended.
Florida Statue 322.03 states that a person is not allowed to drive a motor
vehicle if they do not possess a valid driver's license. If your license
has been expired for over six months, then it is also an offense to drive.
Offenders could be forced to pay a $500 fine, spend 60 days in jail, and
be on probation for up to six months. However, if the license in question
is a commercial driver's license, they cannot operate a vehicle if
it has been expired for 30 days.
If you were found to be driving while your license was suspended, you could
be facing more serious repercussions. The reasons why a license could
be suspended vary, but they could include
traffic tickets, and more. The penalties will vary depending on the circumstances surrounding
the event. For example, if the driver was pulled over at a traffic stop,
they could be fined, jailed, and the suspension time extended. If they
were found to be drunk driving or were responsible for causing an accident,
the penalties could increase to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
