Revoked, Suspended, Denied or Cancelled


Traffic Light

A driver's license suspension or revocation is a separate action from any court case. Reinstatement of your driving privileges is not automatic. To regain your driving privileges you must follow the Department's reinstatement procedures and physically receive a license, even if your court case was dismissed.

License suspension and revocation information is shared with all 50 states. No state may issue a driver's license if there is an active suspension or revocation in another state. If your suspension or revocation originated in another state you must follow that state's reinstatement procedures. The Department does not notify a driver when their suspension or revocation period has ended. The letter you receive when the action is first taken states the beginning and ending dates of the suspension or revocation period.
