DON'T Have Your Driver's License Suspended or Revoked: What you need to know
My clients are inevitably shocked, dismayed, and frustrated when they have their driver's licenses suspended.
The most common reasons for getting a definite suspension order in New York State are:
not having automobile liability insurance
having a conviction for an alcohol or drugged driving charge
having received multiple traffic violations, totaling 11 points within an 18-month period
not following the rules for junior drivers
The reasons for receiving an indefinite suspension order in New York State include:
having not answered a traffic ticket
having not paid a traffic ticket fine
having not filed a motor vehicle accident report
having not paid for child support
having unpaid New York State tax debts
Of course, the first question, my clients ask is: how soon can I get my driver's license reinstated? The answer is, it depends:
If you receive a definite suspension order, you will be informed how long your suspension period will last and when that period ends and you pay a termination fee, you'll be able to legally drive again.
If you get an indefinite suspension order, there are specific steps you'll need to take to remove the suspension.
Even more serious than having your driver's license suspended is having it revoked. If your license is revoked, you must request approval from the DMV for a new license when the revocation period is over. In some cases you'll need to take the written driving tests again, pay a license reapplication fee, and or pay a driver civil penalty fee.
Some of the reasons your driver's license may be revoked in New York State are:
operating a vehicle without insurance
failing a DMV road test
making a false statement on a license or registration application
driving in a motor vehicle crash that involved a fatality
