A Suspended License Can Turn Your Life Upside Down

We Work To Keep You Behind The Wheel

A suspended license can threaten your job security and interrupt your daily life. In New York, a motorist may face a suspended license for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Failure to pay traffic tickets
  • Driving a motor vehicle that is not insured
  • Driving a motor vehicle that is not registered
  • Accumulating 11 or more points on your driving record within 18 months
  • Pending charges for driving drunk
  • A conviction of drunk driving (DWI)
  • Refusal to submit to a Breathalyzer or chemical test following a DWI arrest

The Law Offices of Douglas Scheinman in Queens provides assertive legal defense if you face a suspended driver's license, already have a suspended license or if you were arrested while driving with a suspended license.

License suspension is the temporary loss of your driving privileges, while license revocation is the termination of your driving privileges for a set amount of time. If your license is revoked, you need to reapply for a driver's license once the revocation period has expired.

Don't Multiply Your Problems By Driving On A Suspended License

A suspended license is not inevitable. There may be reason to fight the charges or to request leeway regarding the penalty you receive. You may be able to recover your driving privileges even if your license has already been suspended or revoked. Douglas Scheinman is an experienced license suspension lawyer who will review the facts of your case and recommend an effective course of action.

Do not risk driving with a suspended license. If you are stopped while driving with a suspended or revoked driver's license, you may be charged with aggravated unlicensed operation. Penalties include stiff fines and possible jail time. In some instances, it can result in felony charges.
