Westchester Driver License Suspension Lawyer

By Spodek Law Group | July 27, 2023
(Last Updated On: July 27, 2023)

There are a number of reasons that a person might have their driver’s license suspended. These reasons vary depending on the state in which you reside. Some common reasons to have a license suspended are:

  • You have accumulated too many points on your driving record
  • You have received multiple speeding tickets or traffic violations
  • You have been accused of a DWI or DUI
  • You did not pay court-appointed fees or appear in court at a specified time
  • You did not pay court-ordered child support

Some states will instantly revoke a license if a person is convicted of a DUI or DWI. License revocation is different from license suspension. When a person’s license is suspended, usually there will be a period of time after which the license can be reinstated. When a license is revoked, however, a person must apply for a new license entirely after their revocation period is over. This includes paying any applicable license application fees.

A driver’s license suspension will generally impose the following criteria on a person:

  • The person will not be licensed to drive for a certain period of time
  • They will need to enroll in traffic school or a defensive driving course
  • They will need to receive an SR22 from their insurance company
  • They will need to pay a fee for reinstatement

Some of these penalties may not occur depending on the circumstances surrounding your suspension. For example, if your license is suspended because you failed to pay child support, you might not need to enroll in traffic school. Conversely, if you’re convicted of a DUI, you may need to complete a state-sponsored DUI course and mandatory counseling sessions before you can reinstate your license.

If you’ve lost your driving privileges through a suspended license, it’s important to get in contact with an attorney. Attorneys can negotiate your particular case, which sometimes will result in a lowering of your suspension time. Some states will also allow you a provisional license to drive to and from work or school. This is an effort to mitigate the potential hardship from losing driving privileges.

If your driver’s license suspension is related to a DUI or DWI, you’re probably facing criminal charges in addition to the suspension. This means that an attorney is doubly important. Attorneys can help you navigate through the complexities of the criminal justice system. They’ll explain your options based on the facts of your case.

After your suspension period is over, you’ll have a set of criteria you need to meet in order to reinstate your license. In cases of overdue fees or child support payments, oftentimes a license will not be reinstated until the overdue amount is paid. Sometimes, however, a license might be reinstated if a person shows an intention to pay their overdue fees. This is relevant when an individual is undergoing financial hardship that make payment of fees and child support difficult.

The exact period of time that your license suspension lasts for will vary depending on the state. Each state has specific statutes regarding license suspension and revocation. Some are stricter than others. Some also have language that allows for reduction of suspension severity if people meet particular criteria.

You can check on the status of your license online. You can also find out about your reinstatement requirements by getting in contact with your local DMV. The DMV, or your state’s equivalent of the DMV, is responsible for the reinstatement of suspended licenses. They work with law enforcement to keep track of the active drivers on the road, along with active license suspensions.

If your license has been suspended after a repeat offense, you might face a longer suspension period than you would otherwise. For DUI and DWI suspensions, you might need to install an interlock system on your vehicle before you can reinstate your license.
