Driving without a valid driving licence is a significant charge to be facing and can have a serious impact on your life, including a criminal record and possible jail time.
There are certain circumstances in which you may be driving without a licence which will be treated as a less serious charge, such as driving unsupervised on a provisional licence for example. However, if you are already serving a driving ban for another motoring offence, which is why you do not have a valid licence, this will be taken much more seriously.
If you are caught driving without a licence you will be arrested, charged and summoned to court. Once there, a judge will decide how serious your punishment will be. You could face:
You can see that the penalties are steep, especially if you are driving following a ban already given out by a court. They will see this as a complete disregard of the court and its rulings.
