Suspended Licenses

The state of Arkansas requires all residents with driving licenses to operate a motor vehicle safely and responsibly on its roads. Failure to do so will result in a drivers license suspension, along with severe penalties and high fines.

Common Reasons for Drivers License Suspension

In the event that you give no regard to the rules of the road in AR, your drivers license will be suspended. There are a number of reasons why you may get a suspended driving license, such as the following:

Arkansas Point System

The point system was designed to identity problematic drivers in the state. An accumulation of points on your driving record can result in a suspended driving license. For example, when you have acquired between 10 to 13 points, you will receive a warning letter from the Arkansas DMV. With 14 points, you will get a notification about a proposed suspension action, and your ability to request an administrative hearing about your case if you so choose.

General suspension periods for points on your record are as follows:

If you would like to request a copy of your driving record, contact the Hearing Officer of your case, or visit your nearest DMV branch. Find one in your city by visiting the AR DFA Counties and Regions page.

How to Reinstate a Suspended Drivers License in Person

A suspended drivers license reinstatement will not be granted unless the vehicle owner has adhered to his or her license suspension period first. Once your suspension period has passed, you may then begin the reinstatement process.

The steps you will need to take depend on the type of offense and violation you committed. Some of your reinstatement requirements may include fulfilling an alcohol awareness course (if you were convicted of a DUI), completing community service hours or imprisonment time, and paying all necessary fees. Fees will also vary, but for example, a DWI/Refusal Offense comes with a $150 reinstatement charge.

Drivers License Suspension Outside Arkansas

If you received a suspended driving license outside Arkansas, you will need to contact the DMV of the state where your offense occurred. A DMV agent will be able to provide you with proper instructions and guidelines to begin your drivers license reinstatement process.
