License Revocation

Suspension is a temporary sanction taking away your privilege to drive. The typical length of suspension is 30 to 90 days. Revocation is permanent seizure of your driving privileges and requires a lot more steps before you are able to apply for another driver’s license.

Your license cannot be reinstated, from a suspension or revocation, without certain penalties being completed, proper documentation and approval from the governing agency.
