    Driving Under Suspension or Without a License in Colorado

    Expert defense for driving without a license or under suspension in Colorado

    Understanding the Gravity of the Charges

    In Colorado, driving without a valid license or driving under suspension carries serious legal consequences, especially for undocumented immigrants. Novo Legal Group provides expert legal representation to clients facing these charges, understanding the complexities and potential ramifications they entail.

    Driving Without a License

    • Charge Overview: Driving without a license in Colorado is typically charged as a traffic infraction, punishable by points on your (non-existent) license and fines.
    • Consequences for Repeated Offenses: Accumulating these infractions can lead to a suspended license status, even if you never had a license. Subsequent offenses can escalate to driving under revocation, a more serious charge.
    • Unique Implications for Undocumented Immigrants: For undocumented immigrants, these charges can be particularly concerning, as any interaction with the legal system carries the risk of detection by immigration authorities and possible initiation of removal proceedings.

    Driving Under Suspension or Revocation

    • Understanding the Severity: Driving under suspension or revocation is treated as a serious offense in Colorado, often resulting in jail time. This is especially true if you are deemed a Habitual Traffic Offender, which can occur after accumulating a certain number of specific traffic offenses within a designated period.
    • Habitual Traffic Offender Status: Being labeled as a Habitual Traffic Offender significantly aggravates the charges and can lead to extended incarceration for seemingly minor infractions like driving without a license.

    Colorado’s Provision for Undocumented Immigrants

    • License Acquisition: Colorado allows undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver's license by providing proof of residency (such as a utility bill) and two years of tax returns. This provision is crucial in helping undocumented residents legally drive and avoid the severe consequences of driving without a license.
