Orlando No Valid License – Suspended License


A criminal charge for No Valid Driver’s License requires a mandatory court appearance. The charge itself stems from the criminal traffic violations in Florida Statutes 322.03(1).  The crime is categorized as a misdemeanor in the 2nd degree.  It is punishable by a maximum $500 fine and/or 60 days in jail and/or 6 months of supervised probation.

A NDVL charge is often the amended charge for Driving While License Suspended (DWLS) if the defendant is successful in reinstating the suspended license during the course of the criminal case.  Attorney Joe Knape has defended over 100 NVDL cases and continues to fight for each client that is faced with this criminal charge.  There are many defense available for this charge but most stem from the law enforcement officer either not properly executing the citation or the citation was issued in error.  Many immigrants face this charge for driving because they cannot obtain a valid government license due to their immigration status in the United States.  Multiple offenses of the same crime like NVDL will eventually result in jail time from a Court that sees a pattern of behavior that is not corrected by a fine and/or probation.
