No valid driver’s license in Florida is defined under Florida Statute 322.03(1). A person commits “no valid license” when they drive any motor vehicle on a state highway without a valid driver’s license issued by an appropriate governmental authority.
No valid driver’s license is a second-degree misdemeanor, meaning you can be sentenced to up to 60 days in jail, or up to 6 months on probation and up to $500 in fines if you are convicted.
Even though you probably won’t be sentenced to jail, if you are convicted of no valid license there are consequences. Criminal convictions themselves carry severe consequences and can never be removed from your criminal record.
