drivers license suspension or revocation Archives

The state of driver's license revocation

Certain violations of Massachusetts’s laws might lead to an individual losing the right to drive. With the deleterious economic and social ramifications of losing a license taken into consideration, most drivers choose to pursue a conditional license.

Hardship Licenses in Massachusetts

A DUI conviction can bring with it several consequences, including fines and possibly even jail time (depending on the circumstances). Some may think that, if convicted, once the aforementioned penalties have been satisfied, their ordeals are over. Yet one result of a DUI convinction can continue to hinder drivers long after their offenses: license suspension. According to Section 24(3) of Massachusett's General Laws, one who has had his or her license suspended due to driving under the influence cannot have it reinstated for one year. During that time, however, he or she may still need to travel around Boston to attend work, school and other important appointments. How is he or she to do that without a license?
