Driving While License is Revoked for Non Alcohol Related Offense

Your license can be revoked for a variety of reasons other than alcohol related offenses:

  1. Failure to appear in court at all scheduled dates.
  2. Failure to pay all monies due.
  3. Failing in high school courses (for current high school students).
  4. Some felony convictions.
  5. Prior convictions for Driving While Suspended/Revoked.
  6. Being convicted of any offense in another state that would cause a revocation in our state.
  7. Having more than your allowed number of points.
  8. Being convicted of any moving violation while suspended or revoked.

If you are convicted of driving license revoked, your license will be revoked for a period one year for the first offense, two years for the second offense, and permanently for a third or subsequent offense of driving while license revoked. The same penalties apply to a conviction of any moving violation during a period of suspension or revocation.
If your license has been revoked for a non alcohol related offense, you may apply for a privilege as follows:

If your license is revoked for one year, you can apply for a limited driving privilege under certain circumstances 90 days after your last conviction. If your license is revoked for 2 years, you can apply under certain circumstances for a limited driving privilege one year after your last conviction. If your license has been revoked permantley, then you can apply for a limited driving privilege under certain circumstances two years after your last conviction. You must have not held a limited driving privilege issued under this law any time during the three years prior to the date that you are issued this privilege. You must have no pending charges for any motor vehicle in this or any other state and have no unpaid fines or penalties in this or any other state. You must have liability insurance if you own a car. Finally, any driver’s license issued by another state must not be revoked.

We can file your petition for the driving privilege in the District Court. We will need a current DL-123 form (a form proving you are insured). Call me today to discuss fees and your eligibility!
