Remember...there are serious consequences to not having a license!

  • A driver’s license is considered an important "credential" for many jobs, travel, etc.
  • You are always dependent on others for a ride
  • You will receive additional convictions and jail time for driving on a suspended license
  • It is a public safety risk of driving to you and the public
  • It can be a probation violation if you have other suspended jail sentences
Limits on pay and promotions are a consequence of no license
