What is the difference between suspension and revocation?
The suspension of a drivers license is usually temporary, and the person who has lost the license may have it reinstated once they have fulfilled certain requirements. This may include getting insurance, paying a fine or waiting a certain period of time, such as three or six months.
Revocation is a permanent removal of driving privileges and the individual in question must reapply for a new license once a designated period of time has passed. This often involves a reinstatement hearing before the new license can be issued.
Licenses are often revoked or suspended because a potential harm to the public has been identified. In some cases, individuals can lose their licenses due to conditions that would have prevented them from obtaining a license in the first place, such as physical impairment or mental incapacity.
What are the penalties for operating with a suspended or revoked license?
Driving without a license can be a serious offense, often considered a misdemeanor punishable by a large fine or jail time. In some cases, it may even be classified as a felony, in which case the consequences would be more serious.
If you're facing a possible drivers license revocation or suspension, you need a traffic violation defense attorney who can help you navigate the law and your rights and protections under it.
