Knowingly driving a vehicle while you have a suspended license will result in fines, jail time, and probation depending on the number of times you have committed the offense.
In Arizona your license can be suspended for:
- A DUI or driving under the influence of a drug.
- Reckless or aggressive driving.
- Excess driving record points.
- Felonies committed in a vehicle.
- Failing to appear in court or pay a fine.
- Violating insurance laws.
- Being medically unable to drive.
Driving on a suspended license in Arizona is a class one misdemeanor and no longer carries with it any mandatory jail time or fines but possible punishment includes probation or up to 6 months in jail.
A good defense for driving on a suspended license will mean proving that you did not know your driving privileges were suspended.
