The state will suspend a driver’s license for getting a DUI conviction, having a physical or mental disability or accumulating too many points on the driving record. As soon as you lose your license, your first thought should be, “Where can I find traffic lawyers near me to help fight my case?” Here are a few points to familiarize yourself with regarding driving with a suspended license.
- Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor in California.
- Punishments for driving with a suspended license include huge fines or a county jail sentence.
- Exact punishment depends on why your license was suspended in the first place.
- You can defend yourself by claiming you had the legal right to drive with that suspended license.
- Another defense is that the suspension was invalid.
- The final defense is that you had no prior knowledge your license had been revoked.
- To prove you had knowledge, these points must be true: You received a notice from the California DMV, the notice was not returned to the DMV as unclaimed and the notice was sent to your most recent address as reported to the DMV.
- After the suspension ends, you need to actively reinstate your driving privileges.
- Reinstating your license requires you to prove to the court you finished all probation requirements and took all necessary steps with the DMV.
- You can obtain a restricted driver’s license when your license is suspended, which will allow you to drive to and from school or work.
