What is the penalty for driving without a valid license in Connecticut?

What are the fines for driving a vehicle if I don't have my license yet? I'm a minor and it's my parents' car.

“Driving without a valid license in Connecticut is considered a traffic infraction and carries a $75 to $90 fine. Subsequent offenses are misdemeanors and face more serious repercussions, such as:
  • a fine of $250 to $300
  • 90-day license suspension
  • up to 30 days in jail
If you are under the age of 18, you will also be precluded from obtaining a license for one year.
When operating a vehicle that’s not your own, you’ll also want to make sure you are covered under a car insurance policy to mitigate some of the negative consequences.”
