Depending on the degree it can be either a class E felony or a misdemeanor, but that is with the State. As for TLC I found the following:
Section 80-11 (c):
Once your chauffeur's license is revoked/suspended you are subject to 80-11 (c)(3):
If you are found guilty its gg for you, given the "summarily suspended" wording.
If you are found not guilty depending on whether TLC finds out about the case it can be either $100 fine for failing to surrender TLC license or suspension if they can find evidence that you drove a TLC vehicle after your chauffeur's license has been suspended/revoked.
A while back my cousin was driving a TLC plated car without TLC license, and a suspended dmv license. Yes he was doing street hails, reason he lost his TLC license was for doing street hails. (Idiot). Anyway one day TLC stopped him, with support of nypd so he couldn’t speed off this time. Next thing you know he’s on back of the patrol car, I believe one of the charges was the same one you got. Well TLC hit him with fines up to 10k, or a settlement of like 5 or 6k. That’s not including fines from dmv and everything else. At this point he said F*ck TLC, and worried about dmv which is way more important than TLC. Now he’s living in California, and never even bother paying TLC, he even does Uber part time. Tbh at this point surrender your TLC license and worry about traffic court. Do part time outside of nyc, don’t invest anymore money in this dying industry.
