Fort Wayne Driver’s License Reinstatement
An Indiana driver can have his or her license suspended or revoked for any number of reasons. These include DUI convictions, refusing to take a sobriety test, allowing auto insurance to lapse, failing to make child support payments, or being a habitual traffic violator.
The Bellinger Law Office helps drivers get their licenses restored after a suspension. We understand how important your driver’s license is to you. We will fight for your right to drive legally on the road again.
Understanding Driver’s License Suspensions
There are three main reasons why licenses are suspended. Those are:
- Administrative penalties,
- Medical reasons, and
- Insurance lapses.
In the case of medical reasons or insurance lapses, it may be possible to meet basic requirements in order to have your license restored. For instance, let us say you got into an accident after falling asleep at the wheel. A doctor discovers that you suffer from sleep apnea. The court requires that you follow your doctor’s recommendations for treatment. If you do so, your license can be restored. Similarly, paying your insurance premiums on time and in full can restore your license.
Administrative penalties, on the other hand, may require more work.
Administrative Penalties and License Suspensions
Administrative penalties are those handed down by courts for violating traffic laws. Examples of these include:
- Having 10 or more moving violations over a 10-year period;
- You had three or more major violations; or,
- You had two major offenses one of which resulted in serious injury or death.
In some cases, administrative penalties are automatic. For instance, if you refuse to take a breathalyzer or otherwise submit to sobriety testing, your license will be automatically suspended. In other cases, your license can be suspended for non-driving-related crimes. These include failure to pay child support, failure to appear for a summons, and writing bad checks.
Driving with a suspended license is not advisable. You can face jail time and serious fines while simultaneously hurting your ability to restore your license. The attorneys at Bellinger Law Office can help you get your license legally restored.
