Driving While Suspended: Fines, Suspensions and Jail Time

Driving with a suspended license is not just a traffic infraction, but a criminal offense that can lead to incarceration and a criminal record. At Spodek Law Group, we understand the importance of fighting license suspensions and revocations before it’s too late. Our experienced attorneys, led by Attorney Todd Spodek, can help protect your right to drive, allowing you to get to work and other important places.

If you’ve already been accused of driving without a valid license, it’s crucial to act quickly and seek legal representation. Our New York traffic lawyers can provide strategic assistance, fighting to reduce penalties or avoid a conviction altogether. We have extensive knowledge of NYC’s vehicle and traffic laws, as well as criminal laws in the state.


There are numerous reasons why your license could be suspended or revoked in the state of New York, such as accumulating too many points or driving under the influence. When your license is taken away, you’re unable to drive. Suspension occurs for a designated time, but revocation means you must apply for a new license. Until your license is fully restored, refrain from getting behind the wheel.

Driving without a valid license can result in the offense of Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (AUO), which could be a misdemeanor or a felony. Spodek Law Group has represented many motorists accused of driving without a valid license. Our legal team, led by Attorney Todd Spodek, has the experience to fight for the best outcomes possible for our clients.


The penalties for Aggravated Unlicensed Operation vary depending on the specific offense. For a first offense, you could be charged with third-degree AUO, which carries a mandatory fine, a surcharge, and probation or imprisonment for up to 30 days. For repeat offenses, you could be charged with second-degree AUO and face a mandatory fine, surcharge, probation or imprisonment for up to 180 days. If your license was suspended or revoked due to a DWI, drug-related violation, or refusal to take a blood alcohol concentration test, you could face a mandatory fine and imprisonment if you drive with a suspended/revoked license.


Regardless of whether it’s a misdemeanor or felony, a criminal record for driving without a valid license can impact your future negatively. You could face difficulty obtaining employment and higher automobile insurance costs. Don’t just accept the charges against you; work with a top traffic lawyer in NYC to avoid consequences or reduce penalties.


Don’t simply pay the citation and be done with it. Always be ready to fight back with NY Traffic Firm. Our legal team has the knowledge and experience to defend you against accusations of a traffic crime or moving violation.


At Spodek Law Group, we provide help to our clients in avoiding suspension or revocation before they lose their license. Our NY traffic crime lawyers can assist in defending you if you’ve been accused of a traffic crime or moving violation. Our goal is to help you avoid a guilty verdict for driving with a suspended or revoked license. We can help you to introduce reasonable doubt or consider any affirmative defenses that you could raise.

To find out how Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek can help you fight charges related to driving without a valid license, give us a call today. Our attorneys can also assist with negotiating a plea deal to help you reduce penalties or even reduce charges. Pleading guilty can be a viable option that results in a more favorable outcome than fighting a case and losing in court. We can help you to decide if you want to plead guilty, based on the circumstances of your charges and the strength of the evidence against you.

Our legal team knows the ins-and-outs of motor vehicle laws and criminal laws. We understand the importance of protecting your right to drive, and we’re committed to fighting for the best outcomes possible. Contact Spodek Law Group today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.
