Getting Your Suspended License Back
Failing to pay a traffic ticket, being convicted of drunk driving, or driving recklessly are all reasons why an individual’s license may be suspended. When a license has been suspended by the secretary of state, it is illegal for the driver to operate a motor vehicle. A driver whose license has been suspended and who has been caught operating a motor vehicle may be charged with driving while license suspended.
Strict Penalties For Repeated Violations
In Michigan, driving while license suspended is generally classified as a misdemeanor crime.
- If convicted, an individual may face large fines and jail time — however, for a first-time offender, incarceration is unlikely.
- For each subsequent conviction, the penalties increase.
- If the driver whose license is suspended causes an accident, he or she may face felony criminal charges.
- Penalties may include imprisonment, large fines, and more.
