Suspended Driver’s License – Why is my license suspended?

There are several reasons why you may have a suspended driver’s license. In some instances, you can get your license back immediately. In other cases, there may be a cost involved in getting your license back, whether in money or in time. This article doesn’t cover all of the nuances, so if you have additional questions, you should contact Attorney Paul J. Denni for assistance in getting your license back. Be aware that driving with a suspended license can result in additional charges under 14601.1.

Suspended Driver’s License for Unpaid Traffic Tickets

One of the most common reasons for a suspended driver’s license is because of unpaid traffic tickets. When you don’t go to court on your traffic ticket to address it, or when you don’t pay your traffic ticket (in other words, if you just ignore it), your case will be referred to the traffic court’s collections department, at which time a hold will be placed on your driver’s license. In this case, you can pay off the ticket to get your license clear, but because you’ve already been referred to collections, there may be increased consequences of paying collections. You should contact Attorney Paul Denni before paying collections, and he will be able to advise you on the pros and cons of paying collections, as well as the best way to get your license clear.

Suspended Driver’s License Due to a DUI

If you get a DUI, your license will be suspended for between 3 months to a year (depending on if you have any DUI priors or other aggravating circumstances). You have a right to an APS hearing to contest the suspension of your driver’s license.
