Fairfax Driving With Suspended License Lawyers

It can be difficult to live with the fact that you are unable to drive a car. You still need to go to work, take children to school and be able to perform other tasks. But, if your driver's license has been suspended because of a DWI/DUI, reckless driving conviction, an accumulation of DMV points, failure to pay fines or some other reason, and you have not received restricted driving privileges, it may seem that you have no other choice than to drive yourself.

The Government must also prove that you had actual notice of your suspension. Frequently suspension notices are mailed old addresses and drivers have no idea their license is suspended.

If you are pulled over while driving on a suspended license, you can be facing a class-1 misdemeanor. The penalties for driving on a suspended license can be harsher than most people would think and can include:

  • An additional driver's license suspension period equal to the original suspension period or up to 90 days if the original suspension was indefinite
  • 12 months jail time
  • $2,500 fine
  • Significantly increased insurance expenses

These penalties are too substantial to simply put your fate in the hands of a prosecutor. Secure experienced representation that is capable of defending your rights with the skill that they deserve.
