Driving is a fundamental way of getting around. We need to drive to get to work, to take our children to school, and to shop at grocery and other stores. When your driver’s license gets suspended it can be devastating and may create a very difficult situation for you and your family. There may be a way to reinstate your driving privileges.

Reasons for License Suspension

In Indiana there are a number of reasons why you may have had your driver’s license suspended. These include:

  • DUI/OWI – Driving or operating while intoxicated can result in suspension of your driver’s license if convicted.
  • Missing a court appearance – Failure to appear at an important hearing could cause your license to be suspended.
  • Not having auto insurance – You must have vehicle insurance in Indiana.
  • Excessive traffic violations – Habitual traffic violations could cause your driving privileges to be suspended.
  • Failing to pass a vision test – If you fail a vision test your license will be suspended.

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, BMV, can provide you or your attorney with the exact reason for the suspension. Different reasons for suspension will have different ways to resolve them and unique time-periods that must be observed.

Clearing Up Problems

If you have underlying problems that resulted in the suspension of your license you will need to clear these up first. Then, you will be able to proceed with the correct process to reinstate your license. Sometimes these issues can be rather complex. You can get the help you need to determine the issues from a reliable attorney who will also assist you in taking the steps needed to resolve the problems to get your license back.

Hardship Driving Privileges

If your license was suspended but you need to drive to work you may qualify for a probationary (hardship) driver’s license. A hardship license allows you restricted or conditional driving privileges. There are several situations that may allow you to be eligible for a hardship license. If this is your first suspension you may be able to get a hardship license if you can prove that you need the license for work and not having it will put your family under hardship. Those whose license was suspended due to not having insurance will need to show that their lack of insurance was caused by an oversight. If you have a suspended license because of a large number of tickets, also known as habitual traffic violator, your suspension could be up to 10 years. However, you may be able to get a hardship license under some circumstances.
