Driving with a suspended license is charged as Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in the third degree, for a first offense. N.Y. Veh. & Traffic Laws, Section 511. It's a misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days of imprisonment and fines
of $200 to $500. The judge will also extend the suspension, making it longer before the person can drive legally. Depending on the reason for the suspension, the person could be charged with second degree aggravated unlicensed operation which carries a mandatory 7 days imprisonment.
Typically, when a person is charged with driving without a license, the charges will be dismissed if he produces a valid license in court. So, if a person gets a citation
for driving with a copy instead of the real thing, he may be able to have the charge dismissed later.
