Question: What are the penalties for driving with a revoked license in Wisconsin?

Answer: The basic penalty for driving while revoked is a forfeiture, again, of up to $2,500. However, if the revocation is based on an OWI or alcohol-related refusal to submit to a test—which is quite often the reason for a revocation—then it is a criminal offense and it can be punished by up to one year in jail as well as fines as a potential penalty. And, again, this is another occasion where if a person is revoked, even if they’re not breaking the law in any other way, if an accident occurs and a person is injured, the penalties are increased and a person can be facing up to a felony charge for that.
