Your Driver’s License Was Suspended. Now What?
From refusing to pay child support, to getting arrested for driving while impaired (DWI), to failing to pay parking tickets, a variety of activities can lead to the state suspending your driver’s license. Depending on the specifics of the case, your license can be suspended for up to a year, and can even be suspended for longer if you fail to comply with the requirements of the suspension or are a repeat offender. If your license has been suspended, now is the time to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.
A Basic Procedural Overview
In Minnesota, there are multiple activities that one can engage in that result in their license being suspended, including:
- An out-of-state conviction
- Providing false insurance statements
- Committing a moving violation
- Using false identification
- Getting charged with a DWI or underage drinking
Upon having your license suspended, you will receive a “notice of withdrawal” that provides you with the requirements you need to meet in order to get your license reinstated.
In order to get your license back, you must pay the suspension fines and successfully obey all the requirements mandated by the court. While your license is suspended, if certain conditions are met, you may still be able to drive in a limited capacity such as going to and from work or school. You can also arrange to be able to drive to a court-ordered drug or alcohol education class.
