Welcome to the Law Office of Craig Bondy, where we have experience in providing legal assistance for issues related to driver’s license suspension and revocation in New York. This page is dedicated to offering you comprehensive information and support if you are facing the challenge of a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
In New York, driver’s license suspension and revocation are serious matters that can significantly impact your life. Here’s an overview of what they entail:
A suspension of your driver’s license means that your driving privileges are temporarily withdrawn. Suspensions can occur for various reasons, including:
In New York, having your driver’s license suspended can significantly disrupt your daily life. It’s crucial to recognize the signs and official notifications of a suspension to avoid further legal complications. Here’s a guide on how to know if your license has been suspended in New York.
The most direct way to know if your license has been suspended is through an official notice from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This notice is typically sent via mail to your registered address. It will detail the reason for the suspension and the duration.
Ensure your mailing address is up to date with the DMV to receive all correspondence. Missing a suspension notice due to an outdated address can lead to unintentional violations.
New York State DMV offers online services where you can create a MyDMV account.
Through this account, you can check the status of your driver’s license anytime, which will indicate if your license is valid, suspended, or revoked.
It’s a good practice to periodically check your license status online, especially if you have recent traffic violations or unpaid fines.
If you have accumulated multiple traffic violations or exceeded the point limit on your license (11 points in 18 months), it might be an indicator of an impending suspension.
DUI/DWI arrests or convictions are also common reasons for immediate suspension.
Ignoring traffic tickets, failing to pay fines, or not appearing in court on scheduled dates can lead to automatic suspension.
Certain offenses, like driving without insurance or involvement in a serious traffic incident, can lead to immediate suspension.
If you haven’t received a notice but suspect your license might be suspended, contact the New York DMV directly for confirmation.
Understanding the specifics of your suspension and the steps needed for reinstatement can be complex. Consulting with an attorney with experience in traffic law can provide clarity and guidance.
Revocation is more severe than suspension. It involves the complete termination of your driver’s license. To regain driving privileges after a revocation, you must reapply for a license once the revocation period ends. Common causes for revocation include:
In New York, a driver’s license revocation is a serious matter with significant implications. Unlike suspension, revocation means your license is canceled, and you must go through the process of reapplying for a new one after the revocation period. Knowing if your license has been revoked is crucial for legal compliance. Here’s how to stay informed:
Utilize the MyDMV online services to check the status of your driver’s license. You can create an account on the New York State DMV website.
Your MyDMV account will indicate if your license is valid, suspended, or revoked.
Licenses are often revoked due to serious offenses like DUI/DWI convictions, vehicular manslaughter, or repeated traffic violations.
Non-compliance with DMV requirements, such as not responding to DMV notices or failing to pay fines, can also lead to revocation.
Certain medical conditions that impair driving ability, or legal issues like child support delinquency, can be grounds for revocation.
Carefully read the revocation order to understand the specific reasons and the duration of the revocation.
Consider the requirements for reapplying for a license, which may include completing a defensive driving course, addressing the reasons for revocation, or passing a driving test.
Since license revocation can be complex, consulting with a traffic law attorney can be invaluable. We can offer guidance on the revocation process and how to regain your driving privileges.
