Penalties for Driving with a Suspended License
A charge of driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license in the state of Virginia can carry several severe penalties. Class 1 misdemeanor offenses are the most serious type of misdemeanor, as they are only one step below a felony. Penalties will vary depending on whether or not a person has previous convictions for driving with a suspended license In addition to the obvious criminal penalties, a criminal conviction can inflict irreparable damage to a person’s career and reputation.
A conviction can bring the following consequences:
- Fines up to $2,500
- Up to 12 months in jail
- License suspension or revocation for an additional period
Additional license suspensions are required to be the same amount of time as the original suspension. For example, if a person’s license was originally suspended for a period of one year and is convicted of driving on a suspended license during this time, the judge must suspend the driver’s license for an additional year. This loss of mobility can make it extremely difficult for a person to travel to and from work, medical appointments, and necessary errands.
