Many people are tempted to get behind the wheel, even if they don't have a license yet or they have it revoked, or expired. However, people driving a vehicle without a license risk losing more things than they can imagine.

The consequences of driving without a license are the following:

  • High fines. The fines for driving without a license are ranging from $150 to $10,000 for first offenses. Offenders will spend more money on their insurance premiums, possible court costs, vehicle impoundment fees, and more.
  • Lawyers fee. Drivers who face jail time because they have been caught driving without a license and have been charged with a criminal offense should consider how much a law firm will cost to represent them in court. It's not cheap to pay a criminal defense lawyer by the hour just to lessen the penalties and charges.
  • Drivers can add a misdemeanor or a felony to their record. In New York, drivers caught without a license can go to jail for 30 days. In Arizona, driving without a license is a Class I misdemeanor, and drivers caught without a license can get imprisonment for up to six months.
  • Higher premiums. Not all insurance companies cover high-risk drivers, like drivers caught without a license. Also, the ones that do cover high-risk drivers are extremely expensive.
  • Vehicle impoundment. In some states, driving while revoked, suspended, or otherwise unlicensed means immediate vehicle impoundment. Besides paying a $100-$500 fine, drivers will also have to pay several hundred dollars to the impound lot. However, in Alaska, drivers caught without a license can lose their cars for good.
  • Vehicle registration can be revoked. After getting the car back from the impound lot, drivers will also have to make a trip to the local DMV and spend more money to re-register their vehicles.
  • Prolonged license suspension. In Colorado, drivers who are caught twice driving without a license are no longer allowed to get one for at least three years. In North Carolina, drivers charged with a third offense can face a permanent license suspension.
