Well then it is a driving while license suspended charge, not just no license. When you go to arraignment, plead not guilty, and get an attorney as soon as you can. The dwls is a first degree misdemeanor and has a 1 year jail sentence, but jail in your case depends on other factors that we do not know.
Whether or not jail time is a possibility will depend in large part on your prior criminal record. In most cases like this, the State will not seek jail time. That said, there are serious consequences that can arise from pleading to a charge of Driving While License Suspended or Revoked. This is considered a major traffic violation. If you are found guilty of three major violations within a 5 year period, your license can be suspended as a habitual traffic offender. If you are arrested for driving while license suspended as a habitual traffic offender, this is a felony charge.
Good luck to you!

You will likely not go to jail on the facts you relate. All anyone wants, including the prosecutor and judge, is for you to fix what's wrong with your vehicle and license and get legal. So, get the vehicle registered and find out what you must do to get your license back. If you can do that before a disposition in court, then things will turn out well for you.
You also need to know that if you simply pay tickets or plead no contest, then you put your license in further jeopardy. So, discuss your case with an attorney before doing anything other than pleading not guilty and getting a future court date.
