Driving with a Suspended License: What You Need to Know

Knowingly driving after your license has been suspended or revoked is a misdemeanor offense according to California Vehicle Code 14601 VC. Your license can be suspended or revoked because you were convicted of a DUI in California, you have too many points on your license for other traffic violations, you have been declared a negligent operator, or you have been determined to have a physical or mental disability which impairs your ability to operate a vehicle safely.
