Driving with a suspended or revoked license is a serious offense in itself and, like many other offenses, whether serious felonies or misdemeanors, can have significant adverse consequences later on. For example, prior drug convictions can bump a suspended license charge up to a felony.
And yet, the automobile is so necessary to our way of life that many people keep driving while their license is suspended or revoked. What is unfortunate is that many plead guilty to the underlying offense, thinking that they can't get their license back. In fact, 70 percent or more of drivers whose licenses have been suspended in Missouri could get reinstated if they were counseled by an experienced attorney such as Lee's Summit suspended license lawyer Michael W. Hanna.
Don't Plead Guilty
It is important that you speak to a lawyer before deciding to plead guilty to a traffic charge that could result in a license suspension. Getting your license reinstated can reduce the charge, and the process may not be as difficult as you think. For example, reinstatement, when the cause of suspension is too many traffic tickets, requires filing an SR-22 insurance form and paying a $20 reinstatement fee. Even a revocation as a result of the refusal to take an alcohol test requires only the SR-22, a $65 fee, and completion of a Substance Abuse Traffic Offenders Program.
