Believe it or not, Arizona considers driving on a suspended license a Class 1 Criminal Misdemeanor. A class 1 misdemeanor is the most severe categorization of misdemeanors and could lead to a maximum penalty of 6 months in jail, $2,500 fine plus 83% surcharge and 5 years probation. In addition to court penalties, you will forever have a criminal conviction on your record; meaning, if a potential employer asks if you have been convicted of a crime, your answer would have to be “yes.” You do not want to have a criminal conviction on your record.
