A Lawyer That You Can Trust

Driving Without A License Vc § 12500a

DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENSE – CVC § 12500(a)

If you are caught driving a vehicle without a valid driver’s license, whether you have been issued one in the past or not, you can be charged with this misdemeanor offense.  Even if you simply forget to renew your driver’s license, you can be charged with offense and be looking at jail time.

The penalties for this offense can include up to six months in county jail, a fine of $1,000, and a 30 day impound of your vehicle.

The fines for this, and many crimes in California, can justify hiring a talented and well respected lawyer like Pat Carey.  Although the maximum fine is listed, you should understand that other fees usually cause these fines to triple or even quadruple.  Should you chose to represent yourself and chose a cheap lawyer, the results in court could lead to harsher penalties and harsher fines, proving you in fact saved yourself no money at all.
