What is a No Valid Driver’s License Crime?

In Florida, a ‘No Valid Driver’s License’ crime is a criminal charge that is based on a person operating a car on a public highway without having an official driver’s license.

FLA. STAT. § 322.03 (2019)



No Valid Driver’s License is classified as a second-degree misdemeanor, with penalties of up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.

No Valid Driver’s License Defenses in Florida 

  • Unlawful Traffic Stop: In instances where the defendant was stopped unlawfully, evidence that the driver was not licensed is not admissible in court. Therefore, a conviction cannot be upheld.

  • Non-Resident: If the person accused actually has a driver’s license from a foreign country that is valid and in the defendant’s possession at the time of the traffic stop, this may be used as a defense. 

  • Private Property: Can be used as a defense if the defendant was not on a ‘street,’ ‘highway,’ or other place open to the general public. For example, if someone was driving on their grandmother's farm without a driver’s license, this is a defense as they were on private property. 

  • Lack of Evidence: This can be used as a defense if the police lack evidence that the defendant did not have a license issued by another governmental authority.
