Driving on Suspended License/Driving without a License
Virginia Attorneys for Driver’s License Issues (804) 355-8037
Charges of driving on a suspended license or driving without a license carry serious penalties if you are convicted. Driving without a license, even as a first offense, can bring an additional loss of any driving privileges you might have recovered prior to losing your license, and a fine of up to $1,500. A second offense of driving without a license is a class 1 misdemeanor. Since driving without a license is classified as a misdemeanor, the judge in your case has the authority to impose a jail sentence.
Like driving without a license, driving on a suspended license is a jailable misdemeanor in Virginia. This offense is also punishable by fines and further losses of driving privileges. A third offense brings a mandatory minimum 10-day jail sentence.

Have You Experienced Difficulty Obtaining a Driver’s License?
Since the Patriot Act, immigrants have had difficulty obtaining U.S. driver’s licenses. Often we can argue that a valid driver’s license issued in a foreign country precludes conviction of driving without a driver’s license in the U.S., particularly if you have only been in the country a short time.
