If you have a suspended license or a revoked license in New York, you are not allowed to drive. If your license has been suspended, you lose driving privileges for the length of the suspension. If your license has been revoked, you may have to retake the driving test in order to regain your license.

License suspension can happen for a number of reasons. The most common reason is the failure to respond after receiving a ticket. If a certain amount of time elapses, the court will notify the DMV that you are a scofflaw and the DMV will most likely send you a letter. If you continue to ignore warnings from the court and the DMV, or if you have moved without notifying the proper parties, then your license will be suspended.

License suspension or revocation could also result from other traffic or insurance violations, including:

  • Failure to Pay Insurance
  • Car Registration Lapses
  • Failure to Give Notice after Moving

If you are convicted of a DWI/DWAI, your license could be suspended or revoked, and if you are caught as a repeat offender, the consequences are even worse. As a local traffic ticket lawyer with extensive experience, I know the law and I know the local courts. I can help you take action to get your license back.
