Driver’s License Suspension

Causes to Suspend a Driver's License

You may be denied issuance of a driver's license or if you have a driver's license, your privilege to drive may be suspended until you comply with the order(s) of this court. The following is a list of acts that can cause you to be denied or to lose your license:

  • Failing to appear in court
  • Failing to pay or discharge your fine and cost
  • Failing to take and present proof of taking an alcohol or tobacco awareness course
  • Violating a court order in the court's judgment

Some offenses, such as Alcoholic Beverage Code offenses, require courts upon conviction to order the Department of Public Safety to deny issuance of or to suspend a defendant's driver's license for a period of time.
