Drivers' License Issues

Driver’s License Issues

There are numerous reasons one might be suspended in Virginia.  Most frequently it is because of multiple DUI’s, failure to successfully complete an alcohol safety action program (ASAP) required as a result of a DUI conviction, suspension for serious traffic offenses such as reckless driving, driving on suspended, leaving the scene of an accident without making one’s identity known or because of a drug offense.  A driver’s license in Virginia can be suspended for failure to pay fines and costs, failure to pay a judgment, failure to pay child support, or for medical reasons.  There are also thousands of people who were declared to be an habitual offender by a Virginia Court or by Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) prior to 1994, and who have not been reinstated. If you were declared an habitual offender by a Virginia court or by DMV prior to 1994, or revoked indefinitely as a result of multiple DUI convictions, you must petition the court in the jurisdiction in which you live, the court which revoked you, or Richmond Circuit Court if you are a non-Virginian resident, to reinstate your driving privileges.

Whether or not you are a Virginia resident, if your privilege to drive was suspended or revoked by a Virginia Court, you must contact Virginia DMV to pay a reinstatement fee at the end of the suspension/revocation period before your privilege can be reinstated. More information can be obtained at:
