Jasper, TN asked in Car Accidents for Tennessee

Q: How can i be charged with driving with no license when I backed into a car in a parking lot. I wasn't on a roadway.

No one saw me driving on a roadway. Its a misdemeanor and the officer didn't see me drive.

A: Regardless of how the incident came to the officer's attention, it requires action on your part at this point. You should consult with an attorney in Tennessee, but your question remains open for four weeks. If you haven't already, contact an attorney to discuss what your next steps should be. If you find someone in the vicinity of the court where the hearing is scheduled, that could at least help keep costs down. Good luck
