Why can a person with a revoked drivers license continue to drive? His drivers license has been suspended/restricted/revoked several times.Most recently for six ?? months .

Current address--21623 Schumacher Drive, Battle Lake, MN,56515 This DL # was given to me by the above named person, when he had he license suspended for various reasons,(no proof of insurance, child support,Itasca County, suspended license). I also made an extremely poor decision, I recieved a DUI, May 2011. I have met all conditions/penalties imposed upon myself.  I never drove 1 block for 6 months, that my DL was restricted, other than to workI. have been extremely disappointed with Mr. Grahn  ,who continued to drive my vehichle (& others) without my knowledge of DL revocation, and certainly I have insurance issues, related to my own screw-up!!  Terry  has told me "I will never get caught" due to the fact that his son Travis's father-in law (Scott Sachs) is a police officer in Pelican Rapids, MN.  Please reply.
