Consequences of Driving With a Suspended License in NY
If you have a suspended license, it is unlawful to drive. If you are caught driving with a suspended license and the officer can prove that you either knew or should have reasonably known that your license was suspended or revoked, you will most likely face an aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle charge. If you receive an AUO in the second or third degree, you will face a misdemeanor. If you receive an AUO in the first degree, however, you will face a Class E felony. The consequences of an aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle charge in New York State are as follows:
- AUO in the third degree: A potential $500 fine up to 30 days of jail time.
- AUO in the second degree: You will receive an AUO in the second degree if you either had a previous AUO in the last 18 months or you were driving with a suspended license due to a DUI or chemical test refusal.
- AUO in the first degree: A potential $5,000 fine and anywhere between one and four years of jail time.
All three of these charges can warrant a criminal record, which will follow you for years to come. Our goal is to shield you from the potential short and long-term consequences of your alleged offense. The criminal justice system may be intimidating, but we are on your side.
