is an aspect of sovereignty that many people want to learn. Can you legally drive without a license? What is the difference between driving and traveling? Is driving a right or a privilege? What do you say to the policeman if you are stopped? How can you best handle unconstitutional checkpoints? These are all important questions which we will explore here; if you want to know how to drive without a license, you’ll need to thoroughly master the concepts behind them.
In short, yes – but technically you are traveling not driving (see below). However, just because you have a right to do something (in this case the right to travel), it does not mean you’ll never be hassled, intimidated, charged or even temporarily thrown in prison. Rights must be constantly asserted and defended, especially in the face of a growing police state such as the one in which we are now living. That means you need to be prepared to defend yourself. It’s not for everyone, but such is price paid by those who defend liberty and know how to drive without a license successfully.
This might appear to be semantics or splitting hairs, but it’s not. The whole issue of how to drive without a license boils down to this. In everyday common English, to travel by means of a car, and to drive, are identical. However, one of the biggest cons of the Law Society is the fact that they have their own language (legalese) which appears to be English but which has different definitions for some key terms. In this case, as defined by legalese, “to drive” is to go on the roads by a motorized conveyance doing business or being engaged in commerce, and it is a privilege. “To travel”, on the other hand, is a right, and no legislation can be passed to strip you of your fundamental, inherent rights.
To state you are “driving” is to unwittingly place yourself in admiralty or commercial jurisdiction.
As a sovereign being, you never need surrender your rights and exchange them for privileges. This is the way societies descend into tyranny. To exchange a right for a privilege is to ask permission for something (in the form of a governmental permit or license) that you are free to do anyway.
Driving is a privilege; traveling is a right. A privilege is granted by some authority, and equally it can be taken away by some authority. A right can never be abrogated. Our right to travel can never be stripped from us; it is as fundamental to our existence as our right to breathe.
Judges have been ruling on this case for literally over 100 years in various levels of Courts. Retired policeman Jack McLamb wrote a great article citing some of the case law (below). (Please note however this is merely supporting evidence and not the final say, because of these cases were held in admiralty / maritime / commercial jurisdiction, and the secret to driving without a license is challenging this jurisdiction and having your case heard in a common law court.)
CASE #1: “The use of the highway for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common fundamental right of which the public and individuals cannot rightfully be deprived.” Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 221.
CASE #2: “The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common law right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579.
CASE #3: “The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment.” Kent v. Dulles, 357 US 116, 125.
CASE #4: “The right to travel is a well-established common right that does not owe its existence to the federal government. It is recognized by the courts as a natural right.” Schactman v. Dulles 96 App DC 287, 225 F2d 938, at 941.
For further information including case law on how to drive without a license, I suggest reading the magnificent sovereignty guide by Johnny Liberty “The Global Sovereign’s Handbook” and watching this in-depth InfoWars video. The DVD I Don’t Drive, I Travel is also very useful, inspiring and features people who know from firsthand experience about how to drive without a license successfully.
The best way to handle peace officers, law enforcements officers or policemen is as sovereign, freeman-on-the-land Dean Clifford does in the video above. Politely and courteously state your rights; know the law and quote cases if need be; display the confidence that you know how to drive without a license, and that it is perfectly lawful; refuse to be intimidated; and most of all, be prepared to have a long conversation with the initial person’s superiors. Most cops are completely unaware that they are enforcing commercial statutes in admiralty jurisdiction, and that you can exercise your right to remain in common law jurisdiction. Admiralty jurisdictions uses administrative rules, regulations, code, statutes, policy and bylaws – all of which are not real “law” but operate under the color of law. If you are traveling privately and not engaged in business on the roads, you are not under commercial jurisdiction and do not need a license.
This compilation “How to Refuse Unconstitutional Checkpoints” features some great firsthand examples. Ask the law enforcement officer if they are detaining you (“Are you detaining me or am I free to go?”); if they say they are detaining you, state that they only have 2 legal reasons for doing so: your consent or reasonable suspicion based on probable cause. State that they do not have your consent, so therefore they must produce probable cause, else they are illegally detaining you. Ask them for evidence of probable cause; if they have none, ask them again, politely but repeatedly, if you are free to go.
