In Wisconsin, operating a motor vehicle while your driver's license is revoked can lead to serious legal repercussions. It is crucial to comprehend the laws, potential penalties, and available legal options if you find yourself facing such charges.
According to Wisconsin law, operating while revoked refers to driving a motor vehicle on public roads when your license is revoked due to a previous offense, such as a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), OWI (Operating While Intoxicated), or other serious traffic violations. You might see something on your traffic ticket referring to "343.44(1)(b) operating while revoked (rev due to alc/contr subst/refusal)".
If the reason for being revoked is not an OWI-related conviction, there could be a forfeiture (fine or penalty) of up to $2,500. To understand more about your situation please download the pdf below that references potential statutes related:
