Indianapolis Driver’s License Suspension Lawyer
It’s hard to get from place to place when you don’t have a driver’s license. Some people have never gotten a license, and then there are those who have had their license suspended.
Being able to drive legally is an important part of every life. Without a license, it’s hard to live, especially in rural areas. A license allows people to drive to work, school, medical appointments, grocery shopping, and other errands.
But a bad move while driving can cause you to lose your license for a long time or maybe even for good. Perhaps you got a DUI. Maybe you got too many speeding tickets.
Want your driver’s license back? The team at Rigney Law LLC can help. See how an Indianapolis driver’s license suspension lawyer can assist you in getting you back on the road and behind the wheel.
Reasons for Driver’s License Suspension
Your license can be suspended for the following reasons:
- Unpaid tickets. Don’t neglect to pay your traffic tickets. Speeding, driving while suspended, or running a stop light can result in traffic tickets. If you fail to respond to the summons, the court will enter a default judgment against you. Until you pay the judgment, your license will remain suspended.
- Excessive points. You accumulate points when you engage in certain violations, such as speeding, unsafe passing, and reckless driving. If you accumulate 18 points in two years, your license will be suspended for a definite amount of time.
- For a first offense, you could lose your license for up to one year.
- Driving without insurance. If you are caught driving without insurance, your license will be suspended for at least 90 days. You will need to pay a reinstatement fee of $250.
- Non-driving-related matters. In Indiana, there are a couple ways in which you can lose your license without even driving. Failure to pay child support and writing bad checks can lead to license suspension.
Specialized Driver’s License
If your license has been suspended for any reason, talk to an lawyer about your options. On January 1, 2015, Indiana overhauled its laws with respect to suspended drivers. Many people now qualify to get a specialized driver’s license or to get their suspended driver’s license reinstated. You may be eligible for a specialized driver’s license, also known as a hardship license or probationary license. Your lawyer can see if you qualify and if so, they can help you apply for a specialized driver’s license.
