Law of the Day: Possession of License Required

You cannot drive a motor vehicle on a public way in the state of New Hampshire without a valid driver’s license.  Here is the New Hampshire law that requires operators to be licensed:

RSA 263:2  (2011)

263:2  Possession of License Required.

Every person driving a motor vehicle shall have his driver’s license upon his person or in the vehicle in some easily accessible place and shall display the same on demand of and manually surrender the same into the hands of the demanding officer for the inspection thereof. No person charged with a violation of this section shall be convicted if, within a period of 48 hours, he produces in the office of the arresting officer evidence that he held a valid driver’s license which was in effect at the time of his arrest.

If you’ve been charged with a crime in New Hampshire such as “operating after suspension” or “operating after revocation,” you are about to collide with New Hampshire’s tough “operating after suspension laws.”  Driving after a license suspension or revocation can have serious licensing and criminal consequences in New Hampshire.  If you have been charged with operating after suspension please feel free to call Attorney Mark Stevens at 1-603-803-0074 for a free consultation.
