In order to regulate safety on the road, all drivers are required to have a driving license.

In California, driving without a license is no small violation. It can lead to serious penalties depending on the nature of the offense.

In this case, they can simply take the invaluable aid of an MHM Law Group, APLC lawyer who can present your driver’s license to the court and have your case dismissed. Other cases are not so easy to handle. When the driver may also not have applied for a driver’s license from the DMV at all, or they may have their license suspended or revoked. The initial outcome may seem to be the same for both suspended and revoked licenses, but legally, they have a difference.
A driving license is suspended when a driver is stripped off of the privilege of driving due to the accumulation of driving violation points, refusal of taking a breath or chemical test, or being unable to provide insurance information. A revoked license, on the other hand, refers to more serious charges, like hit-and-runs and DUIs. And once a license is revoked, getting it back is more difficult than after a suspension as a waiting period is warranted before an application can be filed for the reinstatement of the license. In any of the cases, having an MHM Law Group, APLC criminal defense attorney specializing in traffic violations will work tirelessly to get to the best possible solution, making their presence invaluable to you.
