Penalties for Driving without a License
Driving without a license is codified in Vehicle Code 12500(a) VC. It can be charged as an infraction or a misdemeanor criminal charge, depending on the circumstances of the case.
If charged as a misdemeanor, driving without a license can result in:
- Up to $1,000 fines
- Up to six months in jail
Generally, a sentence for this crime will include informal probation, a fine, and perhaps community service for individuals with no to little criminal history. Note that if you are found driving while your license is suspended, you will be charged under a different, more severe criminal statute.
