Driver’s License Suspension and Revocation
There are certain traffic violations that can end with your license suspended or, if the charge is severe enough, revoked entirely. While a license suspension is terrible for your driving record as well as your ability to travel freely, a license revocation is a different matter entirely. With a suspended license, for example, you are generally given a set amount of time during which you are unable to drive because your rights have been suspended. Once that amount of time passes, your rights are generally reinstated automatically and you are free to drive.
When your license is revoked, on the other hand, there is no simple fix. Revoked licenses result in your driving rights seeing indefinite suspension, not for simply a set number of days or months. And in order to regain them, you have to petition the Secretary of State and send in an application. If your application is approved, you will need to go in for a hearing that will ultimately determine whether or not your rights are reinstated – and many individuals end up with failed or rejected applications.
If you are facing charges that could end with license revocation, you should hire an experienced attorney as quickly as possible.
Driving on a Suspended or Revoked License
If you’ve had your driving rights suspended or revoked, you might be tempted to just drive anyway. After all, it’s not like they can take away your license twice, right? This is a truly terrible idea for numerous reasons, and we implore you to never do it. If you drive while your license is revoked or suspended, you could face jail time of 364 days and a fine of up to $2,500. And that’s just if your past driving record is, for the most part, clean. If you have serious previous violations in your past, you could end up charged with a felony. If that happens, the potential penalties include mandatory jail time.
