Caught Driving Without A License? You Could Be Facing Jail Time.
Under Virginia traffic laws, a first offense for driving on a nonvalid driver’s license, including a suspended or revoked license, is a Class 2 misdemeanor. If you are found guilty, you face up to a $1,000 fine and six months in jail.

Police officers will look at your record at the time of your traffic stop to see if you have any prior convictions. Prosecutors want to charge you with the highest offense possible, which is typically a misdemeanor charge for driving on a suspended license or on a nonvalid driver’s license. I will work aggressively to have your charges dismissed or reduced to a lower charge that won’t include time in jail or a heavy fine.
