My name is Samuel and I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard

It appears the fine is about $150. There is no jail time attached to this. I suggest you will have to tell the court that you owe back support and so never applied for a license because you figured it would be denied. There is nothing else you can do

You will be fined and told you cannot drive without a license. Of course, it you are caught again the fine will increase and the court can impose a restriction that you not be allowed to get a license for 6 months to a year.

And on a subsequent offense, the court may impose a 30 day jail sentence in addition to a about a $1000 fine

I suggest you only have the truth to rely on in this situation
