What is the likely ruling on a driving on suspended license case, with no previous police record?

My wife was pulled over on Fort Meade for doing 30 in a 15. when the officer ran her license, he found out it was suspended. Apparently the MVA sent a notice of suspension that was marked return to sender. They also sent another one that wasnt returned, but we do not have. My wife still had a provisional license, a ticket from 2003, 2005, and last year caused her provisional to be suspended. She was in South Carolina at college(which is why she didnt get a chance to get a regular license) I am currently stationed here in MD on recruiting duty for the Marine Corps.

Quite frankly, this is a complicated situation.  To try and give a simple answer in the space allotted here would be difficult.  Not to pass the buck but you really should consult with an attorney in the area where all of this happened.  He/she will give you a good idea as to what the most likely ruling will be, and if you decide to hire them, they will best be able to explain things to the DMV.  Without such an advocate your wife is at risk of losing her driving privileges for some time.
