What a suspended license means for you

New York City residents often rely on their cars to get them where they need to go. Because of this, having a block in the way between a driver and being able to drive can have a huge impact on that person's life.

First, FindLaw takes a look at the different types of infractions that can get a person a suspended driver's license. There can be both driving violations, and non-driving violations. The latter may come as a surprise to some. However, common non-driving offenses that can result in the suspension of a license include:

  • Failing to satisfy a summons for a parking ticket or moving violation ticket
  • Using fake or altered license plates
  • Juvenile delinquency or truancy
  • Failing to pay a subcharge, fee, or fine to the DMV

On the other hand, driving offenses usually relate to reckless driving behaviors, speeding or drag racing, leaving the scene of a crash, or assaulting someone else on the highway.

Next, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles takes a look at definite and indefinite suspensions. If a person gets a definite suspension, that means the duration of the suspension is already set. Definite suspensions are usually the result of getting too many traffic tickets in a window of time, not having insurance, driving while under the influence, or not following junior driver rules.

Indefinite suspensions tell a driver what they need to do to get the suspension removed. Reasons for this type of suspension include having unpaid tax debts, not paying child support, not paying a traffic fine or answering a ticket, not having insurance, or not filing a report if an accident occurred.
