Help reinstating your Virginia driver's license
Driving privileges in Virginia can be lost three ways:
- Suspension -- a temporary loss of driving privileges that are automatically reinstated when the time period is up or after you complete conditions to lift the suspension. Drivers can have their licenses suspended for reasons unrelated to driving, such as failure to pay child support or providing alcohol to a minor. However, the court may suspend your license for a reckless driving conviction or an excessive number of demerit points for traffic violations.
- Revocation -- a termination of driving privileges, usually for very serious traffic violations. After a set period of time, if you have met certain conditions, you may reapply for a license. You must retake the written and road tests.
- Disqualification -- the temporary or complete termination of a commercial driver's license that results from serious traffic violations or criminal charges.
If you have questions about the steps you must take to have your license reinstated, or how you prove to the court that you have met the requirements, Timothy H. Hankins can help.
