Common Reasons for License Suspension

  • If you have been convicted of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI), your driving privileges will be suspended. The severity of the violation and whether it is a first or a repeat offense are factors in ultimately deciding whether your suspension is as little as 90 days or as long as two years.
  • If you are convicted for a drug offense, your license will be suspended for 180 days, according to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. The drug offense does not need to take place while you are operating a motor vehicle, for you to end up with a suspended license Burnet County TX.
  • If you receive an excessive number of moving violations, your Texas driver’s license may be suspended. Four or more traffic tickets in 12 months or 7 or more traffic tickets within 24 months will result in license suspension.
  • It is against the law to drive without insurance coverage in Texas. If you are ticketed more than once for driving without insurance, you could temporarily lose your driving privileges.
  • Driving with a suspended license or with no license can result in license suspension in Texas.
