Reasons for Suspension or Revocation
By the way, there are many reasons your driver’s license becomes suspended or revoked. So, your suspension could come from:
- Toll violations
- Automobile insurance issues
- DUI arrest or conviction and drug-related convictions
- Not appearing for court or to answer a citation for certain crimes, or
- Fail to appear for a child support hearing or don’t follow a child support order or repayment plan.
Not to mention, a suspended license will also happen if you accumulate a certain number of points on your driving record. For instance, you accumulate points through speeding tickets and other driving offenses. As a result, you will need to appear in court when you accumulate nine points.
Criminal Charges for Operating on a Suspended or Revoked License
To begin with, when you drive with a suspended or revoked license (DWLS), you commit a crime. Often, they will charge you with a misdemeanor. So, the maximum sentence depends on whether you have prior convictions for operating with a suspended or revoked license.
- First violation – second-degree misdemeanor with up to 60 days in jail a $500 fine
- Second violation – first-degree misdemeanor with up to 1 year in jail a $1,000 fine
- Third violation – third-degree felony with up to 5 years in prison a $5,000 fine
