What Repeat Offenses Do to My License

dui offense

If you have been caught and charged for repeated offenses, you could end up paying the price with your driver’s license. When you’re charged with an offense, such as a DUI for example, you might have your license suspended or revoked.

Being charged with multiple offenses, however, can lead to your license being suspended for even longer. Once your license is revoked, you won’t be allowed to drive again.

Here’s what you need to know about repeated offenses and how InfiniTeam Legal Solutions can help.

 

Driving Violations

In Utah a driver’s license can be suspended or revoked when a driver gets one or more DUI’s on their record or they have received multiple tickets. Utah drivers are given points for traffic violations and if you exceed the points allowed your license may be suspended or revoked. Furthermore, a license will be revoked or a suspension extended if a driver is caught driving with a suspended license. In addition to the license penalties, the driver will also be charged with a new crime in the criminal courts.

There are other violations that can result in a license being suspended or revoked and many of them are not just for bad driving.

Some of these violations include:

– Refusing to submit to a chemical test in a DUI investigation

– Texting while driving (or emailing, searching the web, playing video games, etc.)

– Manslaughter (if you were driving)

– Failure to stop at the command of a police officer

– Theft of gasoline

– Firing a gun or throwing explosives from a car.  (Includes no hunting from a car. No throwing fireworks from a car.)

– Drag racing
– Driving recklessly (2 or more offenses in 12 months)
– Driving away at the scene of an accident

– Failure to stop at an accident and provide medical assistance
– Not adhering to a court date

If you want to try and get your license reinstated, you’ll need the help of one of your local criminal defense attorneys in SLC.

 

Other Types of Offenses

You don’t necessarily have to commit a driving offense in order to have your license revoked. For instance, if you refrain from paying child support, one of the penalties can include either suspending or revoking your license. Interfering with the custody of a child (such as taking a child in a divorce when another person is scheduled to have them) may result in loss of your license.

Other non-driving offenses include using forged license plates, being arrested for a crime relating to drugs, not appearing in court and having a minor be convicted of either an alcohol or drug offense.

 

What You Can Do if Your License is Suspended or Revoked

Luckily, a majority of the states allow drivers to file an appeal against the suspension of their license.
After you have filed the appeal, you’ll have to appear in court. In order to maximize your chances of having your license privileges restored, enlist the services of one of your local criminal defense attorneys in SLC.

When it comes to revocation, you’ll have to appear in court as usual and meet the requirements set for you. Once the requirements are met, you can apply for a new one.
