Suspended License

There are numerous reasons why a vehicle driver may have a suspended driving license. However, by adhering to the rules of the road and state laws, you can avoid an unwanted suspension. If your Minnesota drivers license is currently suspended, the Driver and Vehicle Services office will send you a letter explaining the reason for the suspension.

Common Reasons for Drivers License Suspension

Some of the reasons why a car owner may be faced with a driving license suspension include these listed below:

  • You have not paid a fine.
  • You don't hold proof of insurance.
  • You don't have car insurance.
  • You misused your MN driver's license.
  • You are a habitual violator.
  • You have committed a violation that resulted in fatality or personal injury.
  • You have committed a criminal vehicular homicide, injury or manslaughter.
  • You have fled an officer.
  • You have not paid child support.

If you have an unpaid fine on your record, your MN driver's license might be suspended as well. You will not be allowed to drive in Minnesota until you pay the court the appropriate fee. If you have a fine, pay it to the court, and thereafter, the court will update all your records with the DVS office.

Suspension periods may vary depending on the offense committed. For example, an automobile driver that is an habitual offender may face:

  • A 30-day suspension if the commissioner has previously sent a violation warning letter to the person who has committed:
    • Four traffic offenses within a 12-month period.
    • Five traffic offenses within a 24-month period.
  • A 90 days suspension if the person is convicted of:
    • Five traffic offenses within a 12-month period.
    • Six traffic offenses within a 24-month period.
