Driving Without a License

 

 
Anyone convicted for driving a motor vehicle without a driver’s license is subject to a suspension. The age of the person on the date the ticket is issued will determine applicable penalties.  If your privilege to obtain a driver's license is suspended, you must resolve the suspension before obtaining a learner's permit or driver's license.

 

Suspension Period

 

Under Age 18

Anyone under age 18 who has been convicted for driving a motor vehicle without a driver’s license will have their driving privilege suspended for a period of one year.

 

Ages 18 or Older
 
Anyone 18 years of age or older who has two or more convictions for driving a motor vehicle without a driver’s license will have their driving privilege suspended for 90 days for the second conviction and each subsequent conviction.
