Driving While License Suspended or Revoked

Any person that has had their driver's license revoked or suspended as a result of driving under the influence, is liable to be found guilty of a serious offense if they continue to drive without a license. If an individual is aware that their license has been revoked, suspended, or cancelled, and continues to drive any motor vehicle in the state, imprisonment is a very possible consequence.

  • First Conviction: Guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree
    • Punishable by imprisonment of up to 60 days
  • Second Conviction: Guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree
    • Punishable by imprisonment of up to 1 year
  • Third or Subsequent Conviction: Guilty of a felony of the third degree
    • Punishable by imprisonment of up to 5 years

The consequence of driving with a suspended or revoked license is dependent on the knowledge of the driver, however. If they are unaware that their license has been revoked or suspended, they may only be found guilty of a moving violation. On the other hand, if an individual is driving with a suspended license and then causes the death or serious bodily injury of someone else, they may be found guilty of a felony of the third degree—resulting in up to 5 years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.
