    Answered . Generally, the officer's DAVID system will show that one of the registered owners has a suspended license. Upon reviewing that information, the officer may stop the vehicle to determine who is driving, unless the officer can clearly see that a female is driving or if the officer has another valid reason for stopping the vehicle.

    Answered . If the police look up vehicle's registration, and two owners are registered the police can determine whether or not the registrants have a suspended license. So, the unsuspended wife could be driving, and the police run the tag, the vehicle could be stopped to make sure husband is not driving.

    Answered . When the police run the tag, it will show that the husband has a suspended license, so if you are the wife and are driving they could potentially stop you. (Although that may be considered an illegal stop but that is another issue).

    Answered . If a cop were to run a registration an determine that both a husband and wife own a car, they would also be looking at who was driving. If a female was driving and the officer is aware that the the husband's license is suspended, the officer may or may not have adequate grounds to stop the car.
