Driving While Revoked

Revoked Drivers Licenses

In Delaware as well as every other every other state driving is a privilege, not a right. With that privilege comes responsibilities that must be lived up to if you want to maintain your driving privileges. Should you not drive or operate a motor vehicle safely and responsibly you could end up with your drivers license suspended or revoked.

If you have been convicted of multiple traffic offenses and are facing the possibility of having your driving privileges revoked in New Castle, Kent or Sussex County, Delaware please call The Law Office of Brian J. Chapman at 302-656-2528.

Suspended Vs. Revoked in Delaware

In Delaware, there is a major difference between having your driving privileges suspended vs. revoked. If you license is suspended it is only for a specific period of time and you can automatically drive once suspension period has ended, fines are paid, classes are completed etc. If your license or driving privileges are revoked it is as though you are starting over and never had a license. You have to reapply, pay $143.75 DMV reinstatement fee, allow revocation period to lapse, take driving tests again, etc. If your driving privileges are revoked your license in not automatically reinstated in Delaware. In addition, traffic violations committed in another state can lead to your driving privileges being suspended or revoked in Delaware.
