Driving without a license in New York State is a traffic violation, but the status of the driver’s licensure directly affects the legal penalties that follow the arrest. A driver who never obtained a license in the first place can face different consequences than a motorist whose license has expired, been suspended, or been revoked entirely. The criteria are specific in these claims, creating a sort of legal minefield for any driver without representation by an attorney.

Driving Without a License
In New York State, driving without a license typically means that you have not been issued a license and that you are driving without one.

In most cases, your license has been suspended for failing to pay traffic fines or tickets in other localities.
