Traffic Law | Driving While Suspended

Driving while suspended is perhaps one of the most common and serious charges in the municipal court system. A person who is convicted of driving while suspended or revoked may also receive some stiff penalties.

A driver's license may be suspended in two ways:

  1. A judge may issue a suspension order of a driver's license in Missouri.
  2. A judge can suspend a driver's license for a number of reasons. The suspension is usually based upon:

    • Failure to comply with a court order
    • Failure to appear in court
    • Failure to pay parking tickets
    • Failure to pay child support

  3. The Missouri Department of Motor Vehicles can take administrative action and suspend a driver's license. This usually occurs as the result of accumulated points for convictions of moving violations, such as speeding.

An experienced traffic law attorney may be able to have your license reinstated.
