Tennessee HMVO Violation Penalties

Once a person is declared an Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender, the penalties for driving are quite severe.  The person is prohibited from driving in Tennessee while the HMVO judgment or order prohibiting driving is in effect.  If found operating a motor vehicle, the HMVO offender commits a Class E felony.  No traffic or criminal violation is required for an HMVO violation–the only requirement is that the person be found to be operating a motor vehicle in Tennessee.

If convicted of the felony offense of Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender, the person may be sentenced to serve one to six years imprisonment and be subjected to a fine not exceeding $3,000.00.
