Suspended License

Driving With a Suspended License

According to the Law

A driver’s license suspension is a result of many traffic violations, one of which is driving under the influence. If you are suspended, you are obviously prohibited to drive any vehicle. Chapter 483 of Nevada’s Revised Statutes clearly states that anyone who drives a vehicle with a suspended driver’s license is committing a misdemeanor. A defense lawyer in Las Vegas should discuss these matters to you in case you want to know more.

When You are Caught

If you are caught driving by the police even if your license suspended, you will receive penalties depending on the state or situation of your case. They usually include extra fines, immediate jail times, and, on some occasions, losing your right to have a license.

Even if your court case, for example a diving under the influence (DUI) charge, is finished and your suspension has been lifted, you will still have to reinstate your license at the Department of Motor Vehicles personally since a driver license suspension will not undo itself on the department.

Additional Penalties

As mentioned, you will receive additional penances, aside from your ongoing penalties. Some of the most common penalties are:

  • Jail time of 30 days (if already convicted for DUI)
  • Additional time for license suspension
  • Fine of $1000 and up
  • Probable felony charge
  • A much more difficult license reinstating process

Defenses to Use

Fortunately, you can challenge the sanctions given to you when caught driving with a suspended license. You can use the notice defense or the argument that you were never aware of your license suspension because the court or DMV failed to inform you. This could happen and if proven, your case might probably be deferred.

You can also appeal for a restricted license if you need to drive even with a suspended license. However, your eligibility for this condition still depends on your current case.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
