Unlawful Display of a License
There are different ways you can be charged with this offense. First, it is unlawful to display or represent as your own any driver’s license not issued to you. Second, it is unlawful to knowingly display a driver’s license that has been canceled, revoked, suspended, or disqualified. It is also unlawful to allow someone else to unlawfully use a license issued to you. All of these offenses are criminal infractions punishable up to 60 days in the county jail, a fine of up to $500, and/or up to 6 months of probation. In addition, it is unlawful to have in your possession, two driver’s licenses. We have represented numerous individuals over the years who changed their address with the DMV, received a new license but didn’t destroy their old one. Keep in mind that the law allows you to only possess one valid Florida license at a time.
