It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while your driving privileges are suspended. However, the Department of Motor Vehicles MUST inform you that your license is suspended. Knowledge is key. If you were never properly given notice of a driver’s license suspension on your privileges by either the Court or the DMV, then you should not be found guilty of the violation of driving on suspended license. If you ever find yourself in a circumstance where you have been cited and or arrested for driving on a suspended license, a knowledgeable attorney can help you navigate through the system and make sure to defend you on every element of the crime.
