Permitting an Unauthorized Driver
Work with us to protect your license!
Many clients are shocked to learn that they can be arrested and charged with a criminal offense if they permit an unauthorized driver to drive their vehicle in Miami. It is not only the driver who will be facing criminal charges, however, if operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver's license. If you were aware of any of the following about the other party, you can be charged with permitting an unauthorized driver to operate your vehicle:
- He / she did not have a valid driver's license
- His / her driver's license had been suspended for DUI
- His / her license was cancelled or revoked
If the unauthorized driver ends up getting in an accident and causing bodily injuries or fatal injuries to another person, you could be facing additional penalties including a 12-month suspension of your driver's license.
