VC 14601.1 (a) Driving With a Suspended License

Many drivers are not even aware their license is suspended. It isn’t until you’ve been pulled over for a traffic ticket like speeding or cigarette litter that the officer tells you that you are also driving with a suspended license.

Why Was I Driving With a Suspended License?

The most common reason your license becomes suspended is due to unpaid traffic tickets. You can usually pay a traffic ticket online. Sometimes you lose the ability to do so if you have failed to appear in traffic court. In many cases it is best (e.g. more cost efficient) to hire a California traffic ticket attorney to handle the situation for you. Attorney Paul J. Denni can advise you whether it’s best to pay a traffic ticket, or whether (given your specific circumstances) it is best to hire an attorney to clear up the mess for you.

Other reasons your license becomes suspended is because you’ve received too many points on your DMV record (a.k.a., a “negligent operator suspension”), or because you lost your APS hearing with the DMV.
