Whenever anyone loses their license, daily life can become incredibly complicated. However, this is often especially true for those who have kids. If you are trying to move forward after having your license suspended as a parent, it is important to make sure that you understand which conditions have to be satisfied for you to be able to drive again. In this post, we will examine some of the consequences of license suspension from a parent’s perspective.

When someone is charged with drunk driving, they may feel humiliated and could suffer social and career-related problems, as we have discussed on this blog. Losing a driver’s license, however, can make life complicated in many ways. A parent may be unable to drive their child to and from school as well as extracurricular activities, which can make daily life challenging for a child. Parents may also be unable to bring their kids to other commitments and enjoy simple activities, such as spending the day at a beach with their kids. A parent may also be unable to drive to work, requiring them to make certain changes to their schedule and even affecting their finances due to an inability to work.

If you are a parent and are worried about what you will do because your license was suspended, you should go over your rights and your legal options.
