Do you need an attorney?
Driving without a license is a crime in the State of Ohio, and the consequences can carry jail time depending on how many times you have been previously charged. Additionally, if you are pulled over and do not have car insurance, the BMV could suspend your license even if a court does not. Whether we like it or not, having a license in this area of the country is part of our way of life. Not only is it convenient to drive where you need to, but it is sometimes essential for job and employment purposes. Losing your license can negatively affect your life in many ways. You should have an attorney to help navigate this important area of the law.
What is Operating a Motor Vehicle Without a Valid License?
The Ohio Revised Code in R.C. 4510.12 prohibits driving in the State of Ohio without a valid drivers license as follows:
“No person, except those expressly exempted under sections 4507.03, 4507.04, and 4507.05 of the Revised Code, shall operate any motor vehicle upon a public road or highway or any public or private property used by the public for purposes of vehicular travel or parking in this state unless the person has a valid driver's license issued under Chapter 4507. of the Revised Code or a commercial driver's license issued under Chapter 4506. of the Revised Code.”
The prosecution must be able to prove that the accused was operating a vehicle, and the accused did not have a valid license. Even if you let your license lapse, you can be charged under this section.
