Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

Driving without a license can have serious penalties

In Arizona, it is a well-known fact that the loss of your driver's license can be extremely inconvenient. It can affect your ability to get to work, to take your children to school or simply to get about and enjoy your life. Furthermore, in the event of an emergency, being unable to drive due to license revocation could have serious repercussions.

There are many reasons that you may not be allowed to use your license. However, whether it was revoked as the result of a DUI or other driving offense, because you declined to participate in a breath or field sobriety test, or for some other reason, if you are found driving, the consequences could include fines or even a jail sentence.

One thing to consider is applying for a restrictive license, which at least allows you to get to work or to make other essential trips. While this is still very limited, it could reduce the impact of your license restriction on your financial stability.

As this article on driving offenses explains, the precise penalties for driving without a license vary from state to state and can depend on a number of factors. For example, if you have just forgotten to carry your license, it may be as simple as complying with a fix-it ticket. However, violations deemed to be willful can have far more severe results.

Whatever the case, if you are being investigated for an offense relating to license restrictions, or you may be about to have your license revoked, a good defense could be invaluable. An attorney can advise you about your options and may be able to assist you with your case. With the right support, you may be able to avoid conviction or even find a way to have your license reinstated.
