Phoenix License Suspension Attorney

In Arizona, a person can face either a driver’s license suspension or a driver’s license revocation. The severity of the infraction(s) committed typically determines whether a person’s license will be suspended or revoked. However, even if a person is facing a revoked license, they may be able to reinstate their driving privileges.

Can A Person Face A Lifetime Driver’s License Suspension?

Those who find themselves facing serious driving violations or crimes could end up with their driver’s license suspended or revoked – though Arizona does not have an official “lifetime” suspension. While a suspended Arizona driver’s license can be reinstated after the suspension period is over, anyone facing a license revocation will have a harder time reinstating their driving privileges.

Under Arizona law, a person’s driver’s license may be revoked if they are convicted of the following serious (or multiple convictions) charges:

  • Any felony involving a vehicle
    • felony DUI
    • aggravated DUI
    • vehicular assault
    • vehicular homicide
    • vehicular manslaughter
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Giving false information to the Arizona MVD
  • Two more DUI charges
  • Two or more reckless driving convictions
  • Leaving the scene of an accident which you were a party of
  • Failing to stop and render aid or arrange for medical assistance for a victim
  • Discharge of a gun while driving or riding any vehicle (drive-by shooting)

When a person’s Arizona driver’s license has been revoked, it will remain revoked indefinitely. The Arizona Department of Transportation provides detailed instructions on the process of reinstating license privileges. This process does not guarantee license reinstatement. In essence, a person’s driver’s license could remain revoked permanently. The process for reinstatement includes the following:

  • Driver submitting a Revocation Investigation Packet obtained from the Arizona Department of Transportation website.
  • Investigation completed by the state to ensure that all withdrawal actions and Arizona state requirements have been met.
  • For alcohol- or drug-related offenses, a person will need to provide proof of future financial responsibility, commonly referred to as SR-22.
  • Bring proof of notice to the MVD, fill out an application, pay a $20.00 reinstatement fee, and pay a license application fee.

If a request is denied for reinstatement of driving privileges, the driver can submit a written request for an administrative hearing to the Executive Hearing Office of the MVD.
