In Indiana, it is a requirement to possess a valid driver’s license in order to operate a motor vehicle. Operating a motor vehicle without a license is a crime in Indiana. Even if you forget your license at home, you can still be charged. Under Indiana Law, being charged for the first time for Operating without a valid license, can result in a Class C Misdemeanor. Any subsequent charges for operating without a valid license will be classified as a Class A Misdemeanor.
In addition to potential jail time, the Court could recommend that the BMV suspend the driving privileges of an individual convicted for Operating a Vehicle Without a Valid License. Furthermore, a conviction for this offense could count towards a person being deemed a Habitual Traffic Violator. Any license suspension for this would be eligible for Specialized Driving Privileges.
