Driving with a suspended license is not less than driving without a license. Literally, you are not allowed to drive behind the wheel, you are not allowed and you should never take the risk of doing so. Driving while suspended can get you into troubles when caught, or worse when you get yourself into another problem – another additional traffic violation.
