VTL stands for Vehicle and Traffic Law.

VTL511 (01) is aggravated unlicensed driving in the Third Degree. You can read the statute by clicking on the link.

This is not a traffic infraction. It is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum possible incarceratory sentence of 30 days and or a fine.

Sometimes, the DA will agree to reduce the charge to a VTL 509, which would be a violation and not a crime.

If you can afford a lawyer, show up with one on your court date and if you can get your license reinstated by then, with his help this might go away.
