Consequences of Driving on Suspended License Arkansas

There are several reasons that an individual may have their driver’s license suspended or revoked. Common reasons for suspension include alcohol-related offenses, violation of insurance laws, and excessive traffic violations.

If you have a suspended driver’s license, it means that your license is temporarily out of service. If an officer pulls you over and discovers that your license is suspended, you will be charged with driving on a suspended license. In Arkansas, this is a misdemeanor offense that carries several potential penalties.

Penalties if your driver's license was suspended for a DWI:

  • Up to a $1,000 fine, plus court costs
  • A minimum of 10 days in jail
  • A maximum of 90 days in jail
  • An extended period of suspension or revocation

Penalties if NOT a driver's license suspension for a DWI may include:

  • Fine of $500, plus court costs
  • A minimum of two days in jail
  • A maximum of six months in jail

Things We Look at to Help Us Potentially Beat Your Charges

There is a range of potential defenses that we may be able to use to get your charges dismissed. One is whether the letter of suspension was sent to the wrong address or the court failed to notify the individual that his license was suspended.

Another potential defense in these types of cases is that the suspension itself was invalid. For example, your license was suspended for failing to pay a traffic ticket, but you actually did pay it.

We also look into the officer’s reason for stopping you. If the officer did not have probable cause to stop you, we can bring a motion to exclude the evidence being brought against you for driving on a suspended license.

Requesting a Restricted License in NWA

Depending on the circumstances of your driver’s license suspension, you may be able to obtain a restricted driver’s license. A restricted or temporary license allows individuals to drive to and from designated locations, such as school or work. It also enables certain people to drive a vehicle that has an ignition interlock device installed.

Reinstating Your Driver’s License

After completing your suspension period, you will normally need to take action to get your license back. The specific reinstatement requirements vary depending on the reason for the suspension.

Some steps you may need to take to reinstate your driver’s license:

  • Satisfying all court requirements
  • Paying reinstatement fees
  • Submitting any clearance documents
  • Passing the driving skills and knowledge test
  • Completing an alcohol education or treatment program
