“Driving on a suspended or revoked license in Missouri is a misdemeanor. A first violation can result in a fine of up to $500, and the consequences worsen with each subsequent violation.
After your period of suspension expires, you typically need to pay a small fee to get your license reinstated. That, along with meeting the state minimum car insurance requirements, will mean you can hit the road without incurring harsh penalties for illegal driving.”
