Driving While You Have a Suspended License

Interviewer: What happens if you drive while your license is suspended for suspicion of OVI? What are some of the penalties you can incur if you are pulled over?

Dale: The penalties are pretty close the same you would face being charged with Driving While Intoxicated. Driving under OVI suspension is a misdemeanor of the first degree. It is a minimum of three days in jail. It’s fines between $250 and $1,000. It’s a one-year mandatory suspension, and immobilization of your vehicle for 30 days.

So, the penalties ARE significant. And if you receive subsequent charges, the penalties can escalate. If you get a second driving under an OVI in six years, you get 10 days in jail, up to a year; a $500 fine up to a $2,500 fine. You get a mandatory license suspension again, and your vehicle will be immobilized for 60 days.

Interviewer: So, even if you are absolutely sober, but you are driving while license is suspended, and you have not yet been convicted for the OVI you will still have the penalties?
