When Can My Driver's License Be Suspended or Revoked?

Traffic laws may vary from state to state, but there are certain illegal driving activities that can get your license suspended in most, if not all states:

Also keep in mind that each state has a points system for driving that assigns a person a certain number of points for every moving violation. If you gather more points in a certain period of time than state law allows, your license can be suspended. Your driver's license can be revoked if your driving record is so poor that your state feels you are not a safe driver. Some states even revoke a person's license if that person owes child support. After a certain amount of time, you may be able to apply for another license through the state's Department of Motor Vehicles. 

Consequences for Driving on a Suspended or Revoked Driver's License

The consequences for driving with a suspended or revoked license may depend on what state you are driving in, but most likely you will be arrested. In most states it is considered a crime to drive without a valid license, and in some states it is even considered a felony. You will probably receive a heavy fine and might even receive jail time.   

Seeking Legal Help

You should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. A criminal defense attorney can advise you of your rights and any possible defenses you may have against the charges.
