Driving while your license is suspended can cause many more problems than waiting for your license to be restored.
Some penalties can include…
A longer suspension, impoundment of your vehicle, possible jail time, and additional fines that must be paid before your license will be restored.
If you are stopped for driving on a suspended license, the officer can impound your vehicle right then and arrest you for the violation. The more times that you are stopped for driving while suspended, the worse the penalties become. The first, second, and third offenses can all result in up to one year in jail, but the third offense results in a mandatory minimum of 10 days in jail. When your vehicle is impounded, the costs of the storage and removal are all on you.
Not only is driving on a suspended license illegal, but so is allowing someone to drive your vehicle when you know that the individual does not have a valid drivers license. This can result in a misdemeanor and your vehicle being impounded with costs.
In order to restore your license after a suspension, you will have to pay any and all fines associated with the suspension as well as a reinstatement fee. Failure to pay these costs will result in continued suspension until they are paid. If you need to drive while on a suspended license, you can petition the court for a restricted license for the duration of your suspension. This is granted for travel to school or work at the courts discretion. The only excuse for driving on a suspended license is an extreme emergency in which there is no other option, otherwise you are exposing yourself to many problems.
