Revoked Drivers License NYC

Revoked Driver's License
Lawyer for Revoked Driver’s License in New YorkDriving with a revoked license is a serious criminal charge of violating a Court order. While the penalties for driving with a revoked license are similar to the penalties of driving with a suspended license the odds are that you will face harsher penalties if you are stopped for driving with a revoked license than if you would be arrested for driving with a suspended license. While I inform you about revoked license tickets on this page, you should not attempt to fight this criminal charge yourself, without the help of a lawyer.

What is the difference between driving with a revoked license and driving with a suspended license?

One’s driver’s license is revoked when Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or another Court rules that a person may no longer drive and disqualifies their driver’s license so that even after the revocation period is over the motorist will need to apply for a new license. {insert link to https://my.dmv.ny.gov/crm/} In contrast to have a suspension against your license, as soon as the suspension is over (and all fines are paid) your license is automatically reinstated. A suspension is usually caused by DMV or another Court ruling that a person can not drive until they fix a problem such as responding to a ticket or paying a penalty.

Defending against a ticket for driving with a Revoked License in New York

statue I will imagine that most people who are charged with driving with a revoked license will already know about the penalties of  driving with a suspended license because it is hard to go from getting a ticket in New York State to being convicted without getting your license suspended by missing a step somewhere along the line that by the time you have your license revoked you will probably have been suspended sometime. If you want to learn more about driving with a suspended license follow this link to my page where I discuses driving on a suspended license .

If you drive with a suspended license and can show the courts and prosecution that you have done whatever the original court which suspended you is requiring, normally both the prosecution and the court will not push to convict you on the charge of driving with a suspended license. This is true even if you were driving before responding to the suspension, and only paid your tickets off at a later date, for instance. In the case of driving with 3 or more suspensions the prosecution may push for a conviction of driving with a suspended license being that it is a far cry from the original charge with a maximum jail sentence of 180 days, however it is rare to see charges of driving with a suspended license pushed if the original suspension is answered. This is because you do have a valid driver’s license with the exception of it being suspended.

However if you are driving with a revoked driver’s license there is no remedy for you to perform, and even after the revocation period is over you will need to apply for a new driver’s license. Therefore the prosecution and the courts will be wanting to know why you are driving you should not be on the road at all. The charge is not centered around the original reason you were taken off the road, rather it is about why were driving after being told that you may not. A few instances of a revoked license is when one is convicted for drunk driving or a motorist violates his probationary license a second time.
