Fight back with a Strong Defense!
There are often innocent reasons why you were driving on a suspended license. Many people don’t know that their license is under suspension until they are pulled over by the police and arrested.
You many not have received the notice of suspension due to moving, or other circumstances. This is common, especially in cases of suspension for multiple DMV demerit points, such as from speeding tickets or other infractions. And it’s also possible that the suspension was simply and administrative mistake.
Claiming not to have received notice is not a defense by itself, but there are often other legal defense strategies we can pursue to keep your record clean and keep your freedom to drive.
Whether your charge was wrong and you want to fight to keep your record clean, or you make a mistake after a suspension from a previous traffic incident, DUI, or drug possession charge, you need a Virginia lawyer with experience fighting license and traffic offenses to help you.

VA Penalties for Driving on A Suspended License

The exact penalties if you are found guilty of driving on a suspended license in Virginia can depend on the original reason for the suspension, and the length of time that your license is under suspension at the time of the incident.
