Driving with a Suspended Driver’s License

Driving with a suspended driver’s license or Registration is a driving-related crime/misdemeanor and can result in arrest, a criminal record and jail time, and a huge insurance increase to your vehicles. While driving without insurance is not a misdemeanor, being found guilty of driving without insurance in effect will result in a 1 year revocation of your license, and up to $1500 in fines and civil fees.

Suspended Driver’s License Penalties

If you are arrested for driving with a suspended license you can be charged with a misdemeanor in the third degree and face 30 days of jail time. If you are suspended with 3 or more suspensions you are facing a misdemeanor in the second degree with a max of 180 days of jail time. If you reach the magic number of 10 suspensions and are arrested for driving you can be charged with a class E Felony which carries a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 4 years.
(Information regarding driving with a revoked driver’s licenses and related penalties.)

While conversations are not admissible in Court because it is hearsay, confessions made by a defendant are an exception to the rule .

Here are a number of reasons you should never talk to the police, parts 1 and 2:
