So I got pulled over driving with just a permit by myself in Ohio, what would be the consequences towards that?

Best answer: Show up in court and the judge will tell you. You won't even have to ask, in fact.

There is no standard penalty in Ohio. That's why you were given a court date instead of a set fine on your ticket.

If you don't have a lawyer or traffic defender, now would be a really good time to get one. Ohio happens to be among the toughest of the get-tough states with traffic laws, especially when it comes to dumb kids who break the law deliberately. There's no way you can drive alone with a permit unintentionally, and every prosecutor and judge knows it. A good legal counsel can be the difference between months and years of lost driving privileges, so hire one.

You probably won't be getting your license as soon as you thought you were. You'll probably pay a fine too.

So you will know after you go to court. We here, have no idea what the judge may or may not do. So.


So

Driving probation

Too bad they can't prosecute people for being stupid. Not knowing the ohio laws, I can only guess a fine and suspension of your driving privilege.

Fine for driving unlicensed. Fine for driving uninsured. Any insurance is void if driving illegally.
