Traffic infractions and criminal tickets can cause driver’s license suspensions and revocations. However, Washington State does not have a driving violations point system like most other States. Washington Department Of Licensing (DOL) suspends on a set criteria that takes into account a person’s driving record. For instance, a driver can receive a 60 day license suspension if that driver is convicted of 6 moving traffic infractions within a 1 year period. That same person can have their license revoked for 7 years as a habitual traffic offender (HTO) with 3 convictions for criminal tickets in a 5 year period. Suspension times vary and are aggravated depending on the type of traffic ticket and the number of violations.
CDL and intermediate license holders have even more stringent requirements. If you hold a CDL, 2 major moving violations in a 3 year period will cause a 60 days CDL license suspension. If you have an intermediate license, 2 moving infractions can cause a license suspension, whereas a third will revoke your license until you turn 18. If you just received a new ticket and you are walking on egg shells, do not pay that ticket because you may lose your license and little can be done about that once the ticket is made. You should contact Yranela & Associates traffic lawyers right away if you think you received too many tickets or a criminal traffic violation.
