There are many reasons for which an individual may have his or her driver’s license suspended. In the Commonwealth of Virginia these reasons include:
- Having too many points on your license (from moving violations and other traffic infractions)
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Evading a police officer
- DUI or operating a vehicle while impaired (by drugs, alcohol or for any physical or mental reason)
- Neglecting to pay traffic fines
- Failing to pay court-ordered child support
- And others
At JR Law, PLC we understand how frustrating and difficult it can be to have your driver’s license suspended. How will you get to work? How will you pick up your children from school? How will you be able to provide for your family, if you drive as part of your work duties? Most importantly, how will you regain your right to drive after a license suspension? That is where our firm can help.
Before you consider taking the risk of driving on a suspended license, it is important to know that as soon as your license is suspended in Virginia, the suspension will be listed in the National Driver Registry, which allows for shared information so your restriction on driving will extend to other states. If you are found to be driving while on a suspended license, the penalties you face will be based upon the reasons why your driver’s license was suspended.
Penalties could include:
- Up to 12 months in jail
- Expensive fines
- Additional time added to your existing license suspension
There are options, however, and our attorney will work with you closely to take actions to seek to regain your right to drive, or to help you get a restricted license that will allow you to operate a vehicle under specific circumstances.
