Ask a Dispatcher
Q. Hi. I read in the Juneau Empire that someone's car was impounded for driving without a license. My question is this; is that without a VALID license, EXPIRED license, or ZERO license. I ask because I just realized mine expired on my birthday (last week). And yes, I am going to get a new one but know my luck I'll get pulled over on my way out there.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Your situation is pretty common. Just get out to DMV asap. If you are stopped you could get a warning or a ticket for expired less than a year. That is a $75 dollar fine under Alaska Statue (AS) 28.15.011(b). If you are expired more than a year, that is when expiration might get you in front of a judge and waving goodbye to your car as it is towed away.
