Arkansas lawyers for driver’s license suspension and serial traffic infractions
Your driver’s license may be taken away from you for a variety of reasons, but in general, one of two scenarios happen. First, your license may be taken away because of a one-time offense that is deemed serious. Second, a series of driving infractions may lead to suspension. Convictions for DWI, hit-and-run, or vehicular manslaughter are all occasions for which your license may be automatically suspended. However, if the Arkansas Department of Motor Vehicles decides you have a pattern of unsafe driving, they may also choose to temporarily take your license. Common reasons for license suspension include:
- Driving without a seatbelt
- Texting/talking on a cell phone while driving
- Driving without insurance
- Driving without registration
When your license is in danger due to traffic infractions, the DMV will first send you a letter warning you that your license may be suspended upon further incident, and urging you to drive carefully. If you receive more than 14 points on your license, the Office of Motor Vehicles will send you a Notice of Scheduled Suspension. If you wish to challenge the suspension, you may request a court hearing. Failure to appear at a scheduled court hearing will result in an automatic license suspension and may result in a traffic warrant. It may be beneficial for you to hire an experienced attorney to represent you at this hearing. Our Little Rock law office is ready to assist you at this hearing. Call today at 501-353-0024.
