Failure to stop and render aid in an accident

If you plead guilty, are convicted of, or enter into a deferred judgment for an offense involving leaving the scene of an accident where injuries or death are involved, once the information is reported to the Department of Motor Vehicles, you license will be revoked for one year.


You may not drive while your license is under revocation.


There are no driving privileges that can be granted by the Hearings Division while under this type of action. 


As a condition of reinstatement, you will be required to have a departmental hearing with the Hearings Division to determine whether driving privileges should be granted to you. At your hearing, the Hearing Officer will be looking to see if you are in compliance with your court ordered requirements arising from the felony matter. If an express consent action previously happened, the Hearing Officer may also be reviewing your character, habits, and driving ability to determine whether it is safe to grant you driving privileges.
