Driving without a permit or “No Permit” is a criminal traffic offense that carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail or a $300.00 fine. This charge is typically applied to two types of drivers. First, out of state drivers whose licenses have been suspended in their home state who get pulled over can be arrested and charged with No Permit. DC or out of state drivers who have never obtained a driving permit who get pulled over in DC can be arrested and charged with No Permit. A No Permit conviction does carries zero negative license points.
