There are several different reasons why a driver in Connecticut may have their driver’s license suspended, but it is never easy to get it back on your own. Most of the time, certain requirements must be met before your license can be reinstated, and it is easy to make a mistake or become confused if you try to manage the issue without experienced legal help. You need a dedicated attorney to help ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
Many Different Reasons for Suspension
License suspension or revocation is a consequence for conviction of several crimes in Connecticut. Most of the time, it is seen as a consequence serious enough to deter all but the most determined and criminal minds; the average person will be so inconvenienced by having no license that at least, in theory, they will think twice before offending again. Examples of violations or crimes that can result in license suspension include:
- Four or more speeding convictions within a two-year period
- Possession of alcohol in a vehicle by a minor
- Possession of a fake ID
- Failure to complete car seat classes or other retraining classes where they have been mandated
- Reckless driving
- Accumulation of points on your driver’s license
- Driving under the influence as a minor
- Vehicular homicide
The requirements to have your license reinstated will differ depending on the reason it was suspended, but it will require jumping through some hoops, so to speak, to get to that point....
