What is the Difference Between a Suspended and Revoked Drivers License?
The difference between getting you licenses revoked and suspended is the amount of time you lose it for. If the restriction is for less than one year, it is referred to as a suspension. However, if your license is taken for more than one year, it is called a revocation. Once you have been sentenced or notified by the court that your license is under restriction, you are required to turn your license in to the court. The court forwards your license to the DMV who will hold the license until your suspension/revocation is over. When the period of suspension has passed you are required to apply and test for a drivers license as if it were your first time. You will also be required to pay a reinstatement fee or any fines before you are re-issued your license.
