With how ubiquitous driving is in nearly everyone’s life, it can be easy to forget that driving is a privilege, not a right. There are several missteps that a person can take, not all of which pertain directly to driving, which could result in your license being suspended.
Many agencies can impose this penalty, including the Department of Motor Vehicles, Secretary of State, Department of Revenue, or Motor Vehicle Division.
There are several things that could result in license suspension, such as:
- Accumulating too many driving record points
- Receiving multiple traffic violations or speeding tickets
- Getting a DWI
- Failing to appear in court or pay fees
- Failing to pay child support
