You know you shouldn’t be driving without a license or when your
license is suspended, especially in Bakersfield. If you get caught, you
are facing a misdemeanor, 2-points on your record and many other penalties.
Whether you are in Bakersfield, LA or anywhere in Kern County, if you
get arrested for driving without a valid license, you need to have legal
help to fight this battle.
In California, there are two Vehicle Codes that apply to driving without
a valid license.
CVC 14601 addresses those driving on a suspended license, while CVC VC 12500 addresses
those driving without a valid license. While both are misdemeanor driving
offenses, they are slightly different in how they are prosecuted and how
you can fight the ticket in court.
What Are the Penalties for Driving Without My License?
If you decide to drive on a suspended license or without a valid California
license, you better hope you do not get caught. If you do, you are facing
serious consequence and penalties. Not only is it a misdemeanor driving
offense, the penalties can be substantial, including:
· Fines of up to $2000
· Jail time of up to one year
· Interlock device on your vehicle for up to three years
· Increases insurance premiums for several years
These penalties can haunt you for many years, making it difficult for you
to obtain a valid license that you may need to work or care for your family.
The misdemeanor can be permanently on your record and if you have another
violation, it can add to additional penalties. You do not want to face
a misdemeanor driving charge alone; you need an aggressive traffic attorney
that will fight to have the charge dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense.
