What Offenses Can Result in the Suspension of Your License?

The Dunn Law Firm wants you to be informed about criminal law so you can avoid situations which can get you into trouble. However, there may be times when you need our services, and one such area involves driver’s license suspensions. What types of offenses can result in the suspension of your license? Typically these suspensions fall under different classifications:

Driving at Night

Driving Offenses

No insurance– If you are caught driving without valid auto insurance you can lose your license for up to three years for a first offense.

Accumulated points — Many driving violations, such as speeding, can result in points assessed against your license. If you accumulate too many points in a given period your license can be suspended.

Other Offenses

Failure to comply — This rule can encompass different violations, but actions such as failure to pay child support as an example can result in a license suspension until the payments are made. Failure to follow actions of the court, such as attending classes or attending a required hearing on your case, can result in license suspension. The suspension term can vary for the offense, so it is best to consult with the Dunn Law Firm if you have any court-ordered actions and have failed to comply or to be certain you are taking correct actions needed to comply.

Crimes

DUI — Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a crime and can result in license suspension for up to a year for the first offense. Subsequent offenses can result in further suspension, revocation, and jail time.

Drug crimes — Crimes such as selling drugs or being in possession can result in license suspension.

If you have any of the above violations or offenses, don’t take chances with your future. Contact Adam Dunn and the Dunn Law Firm today for a consultation. You can reach us at 941-866-4352.
