Under the 14th amendment of our Constitution it says we do not have to have a driver's license to travel is that true

SOunds like you have never read the Constitution, or the 14th amendment.
Such a defense will get laughed out of court-its not a defense, you have no Constitutional right to drive a car without a license--which the courts have long held is the right of every State to require. Its a myth that is popular on the internet because it sounds like a great way for law breakers to defend themselves--its not.
No chance to beat it on the facts provided. If you were smart....you would chat with an OH traffic law attorney to determine if there are ANY legitimate defenses you might raise.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE ATTACHES, FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
As to what you have heard about the 14th amendment, I will submit another question to which the answer is identical: what do you get when you feed prunes to a bull?
We get this question once a week, and you can travel wherever you want by foot, but if you want to use our government's roads, you'll need a license.
You do not need a license to travel (a right), however, you do need one to drive a motor vehicle (a privilege, not a right). You're not going to beat this by citing the 14th amendment. sorry.
