Just about everyone in West Michigan needs to have a car or truck for transportation. If you have a suspended license, you are not allowed to legally drive on West Michigan roads. This is why we recommend retaining The Criminal Defense Law Center of West Michigan to represent you if you are trying to get back your suspended license.

Our suspended license lawyer knows what steps you need to take if you want to have any chance of getting your license back.

If you currently don’t have a valid driver’s license, you can be arrested for driving while license suspended. (DWLS). A conviction for this charge will make it even more difficult for you to get your suspended license back.

If you have a suspended license or are facing a charge for DWLS, given Shawn a call now at 616-438-6719. He will help you get the best result possible.

So what are the main reasons a person gets their license suspended or revoked? Let’s go over these reasons below.

Point Accumulation

In Michigan, you are at risk of losing your license if you have six points on your record. A person can get points for things such as speeding, accidents and certain felonies and misdemeanors. The points are stuck on your record for two years after the date of your conviction.

Drunk Driving

If you get arrested and convicted for any drunk driving attorney, you will be facing a license suspension. How long these suspensions last depends on the severity of your DUI charge.  Our driver’s license lawyers can guide you with advice on how to get your license back and what steps you need to take to be successful at sobriety court.

No Auto Insurance

All drivers on West Michigan’s roads need to have auto insurance. Insurance protects your rights and the rights of others if you are at fault for an accident. Not having insurance is a misdemeanor crime in Michigan. This means you may lose your driver’s license if you get convicted for driving without insurance.

If you get pulled over for speeding and do not have insurance on you, you can be cited for a civil infraction. The bottom line is this: Always have insurance on you.

If you have any questions regarding your suspended license or are facing any criminal charges for not having a license or insurance, call Shawn today at 616-438-6719. The call is free!
