Driving Under Suspension in Louisiana

Driving Under Suspension

Driving under suspension in Louisiana is a charge that could leave you without a license for another year if you are convicted. Also, the judge could order you to install the ignition interlock device, depending on your circumstances. This is not a charge that you just go pay nor is it one you want to just plead guilty to. The consequences are too severe. We try to keep our clients from having to get convicted of the charge, therefore, saving a one-year suspension of their driver’s license.  Since I represent a lot of clients regarding DWI and similar offenses, I am very familiar with driver’s license law and issues. If you have been charged with driving under suspension, feel free to give me a call. I’ll be happy to help.

What is Driving Under Suspension in Louisiana?

It means that you already had a charge such as a DUI or too many tickets, or reckless driving that had points against your license and now the DMV suspended your license but you chose to drive anyway. Any person convicted for operating a vehicle while suspended or revoked will also have his or her license suspended or revoked for an additional year. The judge is permitted to allow the motorist to drive during this period with an ignition interlock device.
