According to officials, officer Philip Buzzanca pulled her over and determined she had a license that had been suspended 49 times on 11 different dates.
Hammond, of North Babylon, was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree.
She was released on bail and scheduled for arraignment at a later date.
It is not immediately clear if Hammond retained an attorney.
This is not the first time Suffolk County police encountered drivers with a whopping number of license suspensions or revocations.
