Class C/Commercial Driver's License Suspension Hearings:

If you’ve had your driver’s license suspended you are well aware of the problems a suspension can bring. In today’s busy world, most of us depend on our vehicles every single day.

We get to and from our jobs or school, taxi the children to their myriad of activities, buy groceries, visit friends and family—the list goes on and on. Without the ability to drive, our lives can literally grind to a halt. There are a variety of reasons you may find yourself facing a license suspension including:

  • If you hold a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) you could face a license suspension if you have received two “serious” traffic violations within a period of three years or three “serious” offenses within the three-year period.

  • If you have violated restrictions or endorsements on your license two or more times you could have your license suspended.

  • If you are under judgment for a prior auto accident case you could your license suspended for non-payment of that judgment.

  • If you are caught operating a motor vehicle after your license has been suspended, revoked, denied or cancelled you could have your license suspended.

  • If you’ve been deemed a “habitual” traffic violator—meaning you have had at least four moving violations within a twelve-month period or seven moving violations within a twenty-four month period—you could face a license suspension.

  • If you have unpaid surcharges owed to DPS you could face a license suspension.

  • If you have accrued unpaid child support you could have your license suspended.

  • If you are found to be at fault for an accident which caused serious injuries to another person, your license could be suspended.

  • In some cases a drug possession offense can result in a suspended license.

It can be a real shock to find yourself with a suspended license if you truly were unaware of the issues which led to the suspension. That is why it is a good idea to check your driving record periodically to ensure everything is fine. If you do end up with a suspended driver’s license there is the possibility of obtaining an Occupational Driver’s License which will allow you to drive to and from work and school or to take care of necessary, everyday living items such as grocery shopping or taking your children to school or after school activities. If you are aware you have a suspended license it is never worth the risk to continue to drive.

Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor which can cause your license to be suspended for an even longer amount of time. You could also be responsible for hefty fines and fees and, if this happens to be your second offense for driving with a suspended license, you could even find yourself behind bars.

How We Can Help

As you can see, a license suspension is a very serious issue with repercussions which can linger for years to come. If you have a license suspension or even think your license might have been suspended, don’t wait—speak to an experienced attorney at the Law Firm of Sullo & Sullo. If your license has not yet been suspended but is in real danger of suspension, our attorneys will make a timely request for a driver’s license suspension hearing. If eligible, while you are waiting for the outcome of that hearing, no suspension will be imposed. Our knowledgeable attorneys will argue strongly against whatever reason your license is under threat of suspension, and if we are unable to have the suspension dismissed, we may be able to negotiate a deferred adjudication. If your suspension is for non-payment of a judgment, we may be able to delay the suspension to provide you time to resolve the judgment with the owed party(ies).

If your license is under threat of suspension due to excess points on your license (which will result in DPS surcharges), it is important to take any and all future traffic tickets seriously and to seek our assistance when you’ve received a traffic violation. If your suspension issue revolves around unpaid child support, you will need to contact the Texas Attorney General in order to pay the past due amount or set up a payment plan; unfortunately your license will remain under suspension until the matter is resolved. Whatever your issue with license suspension, we would like the opportunity to speak with you, assess your situation, and determine whether or not we can help you regain your license.
