Traffic Offenses

Your driver license may be suspended when you are convicted of

  1. Four or more moving traffic violations within a 12-month period, or
  2. Seven or more moving traffic violations within a 24-month period.

If you have been convicted of at least two offenses for a violation that conflicts with a restriction or endorsement printed on your driver license, you are also subject to a suspension or disqualification.

Hearings

When the Department initiates suspension or revocation action against your driver license, you will be notified by mail to the address on record for your driver license. This notification will provide you with the reason for the withdrawal and if available, an option for a hearing.  You may request a hearing up to 20 days after the date of the notice of suspension or revocation.  Please allow up to 120 days for the hearing to be scheduled, in which you will be notified by mail of the date, time, and location of the hearing. 

If your request is made outside the allowable 20 days, your request will be denied and you will be notified by mail.  If you have already been through the administrative hearing process and the decision resulted in the suspension of your driver license, you may be eligible to appeal that decision.

Driver License Reinstatement Requirements

Prior to the renewal or issuance of your driver license, you must pay all required Reinstatement fees.

Occupational License

You may be eligible to apply for an occupational license while your driver license is suspended or revoked. To learn more about occupational licenses or to determine if you may be eligible to apply, please visit our Occupational License webpage.

Driver Eligibility Status

To check the status of your driver license or to determine if you are eligible for reinstatement, visit the License Eligibility webpage. This page will provide you with information on what you will need to reinstate your driver license or driving privilege, including any fees you may owe.  Once all compliance items have been processed and your mandatory suspension period has ended, your driver eligibility status will be updated to reflect "eligible".
