Sometimes we forget that driving offenses can impact our lives in ways we never imagined. Sure, we all know that violating the rules of the road usually lead to unwanted fines and tickets, but certain offenses will actually result in your license being taken away altogether.

If you continue to drive after your license has been suspended, you are risking serious jail time and the possibility of permanently losing your license.

The best way to avoid a driving with a suspended license charge is to make sure your license never gets suspended in the first place. Problematically, many drivers are not even aware of the offenses that led to such a suspension. ( also read our post about ways to avoid a speeding ticket in NY)

Common Offenses That Lead to a Suspended License

The following are nine common offenses that will usually result in your NY driver’s license being suspended:

1 - If you received three speeding tickets within 18 months

2 - If you are driving without insurance on your vehicle

3 - If you accrued more than 11 points within 18 months

4 - If you are driving under the influence (DUI)

5 - If you are under 21 and caught with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.02 (even if you are not under the influence or intoxicated)

6 - If you refuse to submit to a chemical test (for drug or alcohol use) after being arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI)

7 - If you failed to pay child support

8 - If you ignored a court judgment resulting from a traffic accident

9 - If you issued a bad check to the DMV

It is crucial not only to try your best to keep your record clean, but also to stop driving if you fall into any of the above categories. Remember, even if you have to find someone else to drive you to work temporarily, it is much better than risking jail time, an expensive fine, or your ability to ever drive again.

If you or anyone you know had their NY driver’s license suspended recently and needs it to be reinstated, be sure to email or call the Rosenblum Law at 888-883-5529.
