What is the penalty for driving without a license in Maryland?

I'm relatively new to the state but haven't gotten my license yet. What are the fines if I get caught without it?

“Driving or attempting to drive without a license on Maryland roads carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
Maryland law requires that new residents to the State of Maryland eligible for driver’s licenses obtain their Maryland driver’s license within the first 60 days of being in Maryland.
To drive legally in Maryland, you’ll also need a vehicle that meets the state minimum car insurance requirements.”
