    Go on YouTube and type this:

    “Woman who drives without a license and tells you how. “

    Then you will understand what an vehicle is and what a automobile is. What a driver is and what a traveler is. 

    If you watch the video you may have seconds thoughts about getting a license. 

    I actually went into dmv and renounced my driving privileges, because I’m not for hire

    Some of this depends on WHERE.  NYS is very tough on uninsured/unlicensed drivers - and you are both.  NYS will suspend your license/permit/cancel your drivers test.  WHERE are you?

    Getting a permit after you've been caught driving without one isn't going to impress anyone, especially not a judge.  Besides, the penalty is usually heavier for violating your learner's restrictions.  Here's why...

    If you have no type of licence at all, you can play the I-didn't-know card.  And you'll get away with it, because the prosecutor can't prove you did know how serious it was.

    If you have a learner's permit, however, you can't play the dumb card.  Having a permit means you definitely did know how serious the offence was, and the prosecutor can prove it.  There are many questions on the written exam about the restrictions of a learner's permit, and the question about driving alone is always one of them.  You literally can't pass the exam without knowing that, and the judge knows it.

    Where I live, driving with no licence at all is a minor traffic violation, $110 fine and no points.  But driving unaccompanied with a learner's permit is a $300 fine, 30 day suspension, and mandatory vehicle impoundment.  And that's for the first offence.

    I don't think it will lower your fine.

    Advice? Plead guilty. Pay huge fines, and plan on not getting a license for a long time.
