I have encountered the police officer, who charged me with 1M00JJH with Article TA-16-101(a1). Which states that
I was driving without required license and authorization.
I came to the United States in the month of August 2018. And people told me that my Indian driving license is valid until a year from my I-94 entry date. I stay in Maryland, I cannot find any such thing at the DMV website.
I was charged for not having a valid driving license, though I had a valid Indian Driving license. Now I need to appear in court for the hearing. Can anyone help me out, whether my Indian driving license is valid or not? Whether the charges pressed are correct or not.
Edit: Thank you guys, for your inputs. My lawyer asked me to apply for the license out here to go ahead with.
There was one more catch that the vehicle I was driving was a rented one and they passed my application based on my Indian driving license which they approve since it is within one year of my residence.
If they approved me to drive the vehicle without any concerns I think they might have gone through legal channels if not then even they would be charged because of this.
