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

What happens if I get stopped? My license has actually been suspended, but I still need to drive (there's no public transportation where I live).

“A person who operates a vehicle while on a suspended license in Montana will face:
  • jail time
  • fines up to $500
  • an extended license suspension
Driving while suspended carries increased penalties if the suspension was related to a DUI incident. If convicted of this offense, you must:
  • serve at least two days in jail with a maximum of six months
  • pay a maximum $2,000 fine
  • complete up to 40 hours of community service
To avoid further penalties, you’ll also want to carry proof of valid car insurance while driving.”
