While it may not seem like a criminal act, it is in fact a misdemeanor to drive a vehicle without a license, including while on a suspended or revoked license.  Following a first conviction of this statute, the defendant faces a fine between $250 and $500 dollars and a term of imprisonment up to thirty (30) days.  For the second and any subsequent offense, the defendant faces a fine up to $1000 and imprisonment up to one year.  In addition, the DMV, upon receiving a record of conviction for driving on a suspended license will suspend the license for an additional three (3) months for the first offense and an additional six (6) months for the second offense.
