A license revocation is different that an license suspension. After a license suspension, the license holder automatically regains their license privileges with the payment of a reinstatement fee. After a revocation, the license holder must ask for the ability to drive again. License revocation are common with mulitple DUI offenses. Two DUI offenses incurred within seven years results in a one year license revocation. Three DUI offenses within ten years results in a five year revocation.
It is very important to remember that if any offense like DLWR appears on your driving record as a conviction during a period of suspension, the Secretary of State will automatically add an additional suspension of the same period of time. Its called a 904 suspension. For example, if you were suspended for six months for an unsatisfactory driving record and get a ticket during that suspension time, the Secretary of State will automatically add another six month suspension. When negoiating a plea bargain, it is important for the attorney to know what offenses are abstratced to a driving record by the court and which ones are not.
It is always best be plea to a non abstractable offense to avoid the additional 904 suspension. A good attorney like Barton Morris will accomplish that for his clients.
