Crime & Law Enforcement Issues & Death Penalty/learner's driving permit


I can't seem to find an answer on line for this. I live in CA. What would be the penalty for my son to drive with an expired learners permit while I'm in the vehicle with him?

Hey, Al, first, please excuse the delay in getting back to you. There was some glitch between my computer and the site. I'm working on it. Thank you for submitting your question. I'm always intrigued by questions like your's. Strange as it may sound, I've never come across this situation. I am unable to find a code for driving on an expired learner's permit in either our ticket books OR in our State Motor Vehicle Code. My best advice would be to view your son's situation as driving as an unlicensed driver, without a learner's permit. If I'm able to find out any more info, I'll definitely let you know.  

I hope I've answered your question. Good luck and please don't hesitate to contact me again. Thank you and please don't forget to rate me when finished.
