Driving Without a License
Penalties and How to Resolve Suspension
 

 

 
Anyone convicted for driving a motor vehicle without a driverís license could face a suspension of driving privilege, depending on the age of the person on the date the ticket was written.  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.
