Driving without a license can get you in trouble. An officer on patrol noted a local woman driving whom he was aware had a revoked license. As he followed the car he noted the plates were expired and he stopped the car. The driver said she didn’t know why she was being stopped, but a check showed that her driver’s license was revoked; her vehicle was not registered and was not insured. This was sufficient to take her to the LCDC and for her car to be towed to another location.
