What Happens If You Get Caught Driving with an Expired License?Posted on February 7, 2019
Don’t risk driving with an expired license.
We understand that life can get hectic and things can slip your mind. However, when it comes to renewing your driver’s license, you can avoid serious fines by keeping on top of it. If you are found to be driving with an expired license, you could end up in serious trouble and face high fines.
Below are some of the penalties that you could face:
- Ticket fines up to $250
- Points added to your driving license
- Increased car insurance premiums
- Impoundment of the vehicle
Keep in mind that driving with an expired license is illegal. What’s more, you cannot turn to your insurance company to help. If your driver’s license has expired, you are legally “unauthorized” to be driving a motor vehicle. If you get into an accident, your insurance company can deny coverage if you have an expired license. As your insurance coverage may not apply, you could be liable for damages to other people and their vehicles.
