A driver’s-license revocation will cause a serious disruption of your daily life. If a police officer determines that you are driving on a suspended license, you will be charged with a misdemeanor. You may be arrested. If convicted, you may receive a fine, probation or an active jail sentence. Furthermore, your license will be suspended for an additional period of time, and may be permanently suspended.
The Division of Motor Vehicles can suspend your driver’s license for many different reasons. If you have twelve points on your license, or if you are convicted of DWI or other serious moving violations, DMV may suspend your license for a few months or many years. Similarly, if you were cited for a traffic offense in the past and never resolved the ticket, DMV will suspend your license until you return to court and resolve the case. If convicted of a moving violation when your license is in a state of suspension, an additional suspension will result. The DMV will suspend your license for an additional year for the first offense, two years for the second offense, and will permanently revoke your license for a third offense.
