Driving with a suspended license is an extremely common traffic offense. According to recent studies, approximately 75 percent of all suspended drivers continue to drive without a valid license. There are many reasons why a drivers license could be suspended by the State, including failure to comply with a child support order, being convicted of underage drinking, failure to pay a non-moving violation, fraud or misuse of a driver’s license, and possession of controlled substances in a motor vehicle. Regardless of the reason, driving with a suspended license is a serious traffic violation which could have a devastating impact on your future.
