Unlawful Use of a Driver's License
Defense Lawyer for Miami's Criminally Charged
If you have been charged with the unlawful use of a driver's license, you must act quickly to get the legal issues under control if you hope to avoid the consequences. Any person who has a Florida driver's license who has had the license suspended, revoked or is disqualified from holding a license and subsequently displays this license to law enforcement can also face legal problems.
If you have loaned your driver's license to another person who used your license, and that person was later stopped by police and the use of your license was then discovered, you could be in legal trouble. It can also be charged as a misdemeanor to refuse to surrender your license to a police officer or to the DHSMV, and to get more than one license with different names.
