Driving on a suspended, revoked, invalid, or non-existent driver's license is against the law. If you are caught driving on a suspended license, the police can arrest you and most likely will if the suspension is due to a drunk-driving conviction. The traffic laws in California are strict and the failure to obey these laws tends to result in severe penalties being imposed.

Penalties for Drunk Driving on a Suspended License

First-time offenders face penalties of:

  • 10 days to 6 months of jail time
  • Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
  • Fines of anywhere between $300 and $1,000. Habitual offenders may be subject to enhanced fines and penalties.

Second-time offenders within a 5 year period face penalties of:

  • 30 days to one year of jail time
  • Installation of an Ignition Interlock Device
  • Fines of anywhere between $500 and $2,000. Habitual offenders may be subject to enhanced fines and penalties

In addition to the above potential penalties being imposed, the offender's automobile may be impounded for up to 30 days and it may even possibly be sold.

Fortunately, there are a number of legal defenses that can be used for driving on a suspended license. These range from improper notification by the Department of Motor Vehicles to the legality of the stop in the first place.
