Driving with an Expired License
Driving with an expired license is a different legal charge than driving without a license – driving without a license means that there is no license, expired or unexpired, assigned to you. Driving with an expired license, however, means that you possess a license that has not been renewed past its expiration date, and those charged with this offense can face serious penalties. Although specific repercussions vary by state, many general penalties are the same throughout the U.S.
