Serious offenses on and off the road may result in the suspension of your driving license. Repeating these violations several times may lead to revocation. If your driving license gets revoked, you cannot drive a vehicle for a specific time period. After this period, though, you can apply for a new license. However, your application might still be denied by the state because of your previous offenses. The reasons for revocation of your license can be both driving and non-driving related.
The most common driving related offense is driving under the influence. Multiple DUI’s give the state no other choice but to revoke your license. A certain number of ticketing violations may also lead to revocation. Multiple accounts of reckless driving and speed racing, hit-and-run incidents and breaking basic traffic rules also puts you in danger of revocation. Most states run a point system in which each offense earns the driver certain points. Accumulation of these points in a given time period could create problems for the driver. The judge has the authority to revoke the license even if the total number of points required has not been reached.
Non-driving offenses are those that occur off the road but may still lead to the revocation of a driver’s license. Failure to fulfill child support requirements, driving without insurance coverage, using illegal license plates and failure to show up in court could tempt a judge to cancel your license.
If your license has been revoked, you might want to consider hiring an attorney to represent you. The attorney will answer your questions and try to get you concessions which could help you move on with life.
