Driving with a suspended license is generally treated as an infraction or misdemeanor. Depending on the state you are charged in, you could receive a sentence of up to one year in jail and a substantial fine.
Depending on the situation, a person can even have their license revoked. This terminates the person’s privilege of driving. This will require the individual who license was revoked to get a new license.
If your license has been suspended in Virginia or Maryland, then your right to drive is taken away for a period of time. The length of time your license will be suspended for can be as little as 10 day up to as much as one year. An example of having your driver’s licenses suspended for one year is if you have been convicted for driving while under the influence of intoxicants. Your suspension will end only after one year.
In some states, the law requires the Motor Vehicles Division to suspend or revoke a license for certain types of offenses such as a failure to pay fines or court costs. Also, most judges have the authority to suspend a license if it is related to a traffic offense conviction such as reckless driving.
Your license can even be suspended for failure to obey a court order. An example of this is failing to pay fine ordered by the court or completing a program ordered by the court if it is driving related.
In many states, you are required to have car insurance and failure to provide the division of motor vehicles such proof can result in suspension of your license.
The above mentioned are just some of the different types of reasons why your license may be suspended.
If your driver’s license is suspended or revoked, the division of motor vehicles must give notice of the suspension or revocation to the driver. Generally, notice is given by mailing via first class mail or certified mail. The notice of suspension or revocation is mailed to the address DMV has on record. Most states require a licensed driver to notify DMV within 30 days of moving to a new address of the move.
In most cases, even if a person’s license is suspended as a result of a traffic violation, the person may request the court or DMV, depending on the state, for a restricted license. The restricted license will be authorized only for very limited purposes such as getting to and from work, going to the doctor, dropping of and picking up children from school or daycare, etc. Also, the person is only authorized to drive for a certain number of hours during the day. If the person drives outside of the restrictions authorized, the person is deemed to be driving while suspended.
