There are certain situations where you may have your driver’s license revoked or suspended under California law. This can make it nearly impossible to travel to work, school or anywhere else that you need to go. At the Law Offices of Amir Soleimanian & Associates, we know that having your driver’s license taken away can be a major inconvenience. It is crucial that you understand why your license was revoked, as well as what you can do in order to retain possession of your driver's license.
According to the Superior Court of California, you may have your driver’s license suspended for a number of reasons, which include the following:
- Excessive points on your record.
- Failure to appear in court for a ticket.
- Convicted of a DUI.
- Refused to take a breath, blood or urine test if suspected of a DUI.
- Failure to pay child support.
- No insurance coverage.
In order to have your driver’s license reinstated, you must meet certain requirements. These requirements can differ depending on why your license was suspended in the first place. For example, if your license was taken away because of a DUI conviction, you will most likely have to wait for a period of time, pay a fine and complete a DUI treatment program. In some cases, you may be eligible for a restricted license, which entitles you to limited driving privileges while your driver’s license is under suspension.
