Good afternoonCustomer and thank you for your question.

"aggravated unlic oper veh 3" means aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle in the third degree.

New York Vehicle and Traffic Laws:

§ 511. Operation while license or privilege is suspended or revoked; aggravated unlicensed operation.

1. Aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree.

(a) A person is guilty of the offense of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree when such person operates a motor vehicle upon a public highway while knowing or having reason to know that such person's license or privilege of operating such motor vehicle in this state or privilege of obtaining a license to operate such motor vehicle issued by the commissioner is suspended, revoked or otherwise withdrawn by the commissioner.

(b) Aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree is a misdemeanor. When a person is convicted of this offense, the sentence of the court must be:

(i) a fine of not less than two hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars; or

(ii) a term of imprisonment of not more than thirty days; or

(iii) both such fine and imprisonment.


(c) When a person is convicted of this offense with respect to the operation of a motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than eighteen thousand pounds, the sentence of the court must be:

(i) a fine of not less than five hundred dollars nor more than fifteen hundred dollars; or

(ii) a term of imprisonment of not more than thirty days; or

(iii) both such fine and imprisonment.


I would seek the advise of an attorney in your area to see if you can get the minimum punishment.
