There are a variety of situations that can result in a driver's license being suspended or revoked. Among the many causes of license suspension include the accumulation of points against one's record and arrest for DWI or DUI due to unlawful intoxication while driving. There are also other less common causes of revocation and we are equipped to represent any St. Charles driver who has lost their privilege to drive regardless of the circumstance.
In many cases, St. Charles drivers who receive charges for traffic violations assume the simplest course of action is to pay the penalty fee associated with a traffic ticket. Many motorists believe this to be the most responsible way to handle a ticket. In fact, accepting guilt for a moving violation can have significant repercussions for years to come. When a moving violation is registered on your driving record, your insurance company is likely to increase your monthly rates. Increases in auto insurance premiums may be short term or permanent. Furthermore, many traffic tickets in the state of Missouri cause drivers to incur points on their driving record, which are best described as strikes against their record. When too many points accumulate in a short period of time, the driver may be subject to license suspension or revocation. Most licenses are reinstated automatically when the given period of suspension has lapsed, but suspension or revocation can last for months or years depending on the circumstances. Hiring a St. Charles license reinstatement lawyer to advocate on your behalf is the only way to prevent harmful charges from jeopardizing your access to a driver's license.
The threat of license suspension and revocation is thought to motivate drivers to be more cautious on the road. That may be true, but there are times when good people make mistakes. For one reason or another, you may lose your focus on the road or accidentally violate a traffic regulation. Just because you made a mistake does not mean you deserve to lose your driver's license. In the case of drivers who face a loss of income or employment as a result of losing their driver's license, or who can no longer care for dependent family members such as children, the sick or the elderly, a license suspension is a very harsh punishment for one or two mistakes on the road. Our St. Charles license reinstatement lawyers are prepared to represent you in achieving license reinstatement no matter your circumstances so that you can quickly resume your normal activities.
There are a number of hoops to jump through and different types of paperwork to complete before a driver's license can be reinstated. Proof of liability insurance throughout the time one's license was suspended must be provided. Drivers who lost their license as a result of an alcohol charge must complete an approved Substance Abuse Traffic Offender Program (SATOP). Some drivers who lost their license after a DWI/DUI arrest also have to use an Ignition Interlock Device for a period of time as well. Making sure you have met these and other reinstatement procedures throughout the time of your license suspension is one of the ways we serve our clients.
In some cases, if license reinstatement is not immediately possible, our lawyers can help you acquire a temporary or provisional license for the purposes of completing necessary daily tasks such as commuting to work or transporting children to a doctor. There are certain windows of opportunity to dispute license suspensions and should you contact us after that time, we may not be able to alter your situation fully. However, a temporary license can help to bridge the gap for the remaining time of your license suspension.
It is rare that our firm will not succeed in bringing about full reinstatement on behalf of our clients. In most situations, we are able to downgrade or amend tickets in order to reduce harmful points and avoid suspension. We also work on behalf of clients who have already served a portion of their suspension and hope to shorten their time without a license. We will have to review the particular circumstances of your case to determine the best course of action for you.
