A: Any violation of the law while you are on probation can cause your probation sentence to be revoked and the judge to sentence you to jail. Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor, so it is not as bad as if you got a new felony. However, depending on the judge, the judge may revoke you to jail. You should consult with an attorney.
