Driving on a Suspended License in Los Angeles

Violation For Driving on a Suspended License

Some traffic violations such as driving under the influence, speeding, reckless driving, hit and run, having too many points on your driving record, may result in suspension of your driver license.

There are other reasons that have nothing to do with traffic violations that may also result in suspension of your driver license such as possession of drugs, vandalism, or failure to pay child support.

When your driver license is suspended, you receive a 30 days temporary license and you have the right to request a DMV Hearing within the first 10 days of the 30 day period.

If you drive on a suspended license, you will be arrested, sent to jail, and charged with a misdemeanor. You will have to deal with bail, your car may get impounded, and you may be put on probation.

License suspensions in California typically last for 6 months and the driver is put on probation for one year. If during the probation period, the driver is involved in any violation or car accident (regardless of fault), the punishment can be extended another 6 months or one year.
