Re: Vehicle Impounded for Driving on Expired License
If it was towed for thirty days, and your California license was only EXPIRED (and not suspended or revoked), then your friend - the owner of the car - needs to schedule an impound hearing immediately and ask for a review of the facts. If what you say is true, they will have to release the vehicle prior to the thirty days. A thirty day impound for no license can only be done when the driver has NEVER been licensed or has a suspended or revoked license.
Could your license have been suspended at some point?
Note that when you drive unlicensed ANY car you drive can be impounded, and under the aforementioned circumstances, it COULD be impounded for up to 30 days.
