What are the consequences of driving if I get caught with no license in Georgia?

I'm 17 and I just bought my friend's old truck. I can't get my license until I turn 18 next year since I dropped out of school. What will happen if I drive it before then and get caught?

Sophie Newman is a writer from California. Her hobbies include brewing her own kombucha, riding horses, and taking long road trips.
“While some states consider driving without a license a minor violation, Georgia classifies this offense as a misdemeanor, which means the consequences are up to 12 months in jail or a hefty $1000 fine. It could also affect your ability to maintain a license in the future.
In other words, driving without a license is probably not worth the risk. In addition to needing a license, you’ll also need to purchase car insurance that meets the state minimum car insurance requirements to drive legally. “
