The ability to drive is a right that many of us take for granted. We wait patiently until we turn sixteen, at which point we enthusiastically rush to the license bureau to obtain our intermediate license. Once the excitement of the initial “newness” wears off, driving simply becomes a normal part of our everyday routine – until one day, that privilege we took for granted may suddenly become revoked.
If your license has been revoked or suspended, it’s time to take action. Contact one of our attorneys in Lebanon MO immediately by calling 1-877-532-2191.
Missouri Driver License Suspension
In Missouri, a driver license may be revoked, suspended, or denied for several different reasons. Here are a few examples of some of the most common reasons for driver license suspension in Missouri:
Driving Under The Influence
Driving under the influence is a federal offense and subject to harsh penalties under Missouri law. Depending on how many times you have been convicted of driving under the influence, you may have your license suspended. Your driving privilege may also be revoked if your refuse to take a breathalyzer or blood alcohol content test.
Driving Without Insurance
All drivers are legally responsible for insuring their vehicles and being able to produce proof of insurance when required. Failure to do so can result in license suspension for up to 1 year.
Disqualification Due To Physical Or Psychological Limitations
The Motor Vehicle and Driver License Office can order an examination of anyone if they have reason to believe they may be unfit to drive. If they determine you are unfit to drive due to physical or psychological reasons, your license may be suspended.
Excessive Moving Violations
Every moving violation you are convicted of results in a certain number of points being added to your license. If you accumulate too many points within a certain amount of time, your license may be revoked.
Believe it or not, your license may be suspended for reasons that have nothing with your ability to operate a motor vehicle. Your license may be suspended for alternative reasons such as failure to pay traffic tickets or child support.
