Habitual Traffic Offender

If you are convicted of 3 “qualifying offenses” which occurred over a 7 year period of time (based on date of violation, not conviction), your license will be revoked for 5 years. “Qualifying offenses” include but are not limited to:


  • Driving under suspension or revocation

  • Driving while ability impaired (DWAI)

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)

  • Reckless driving

  • Vehicular assault

  • Vehicular homicide


While under suspension, you may not drive until your license is reinstated. 


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


You may request a hearing, however the only issue will be is whether your motor vehicle history is correct.


In certain situations, you may be eligible for early reinstatement after the first year of the revocation has been served. For further information on reinstatement, click here.
