QuestionHow do I clear up a suspended driver’s license?
Answer

If you received a ticket for a suspended license violation, you must immediately go to the Motor Vehicle Department to inquire about your status. This will be the first step in clearing up your drivers license . The following are examples of why a driver’s license may be suspended.

  • Unpaid child support
  • Fail to appear in court
  • Fail to pay fines
  • Accumulation of points

If you fail to show a cleared license your driving privileges may be suspended for another year and a maximum fine of $500 may be imposed with a mandatory four day jail term to be served. The court will give you the opportunity to clear everything, come back to the court office, and possibly show a reinstated drivers license.
