Helping Tucson Motorists With License Reinstatement
Driving privileges are among the most important we have when it comes to freedom of movement. As police officers and Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) employees are happy to tell you, driving is not a right; it is a privilege that can be suspended or revoked by the MVD.
If you have received notice of an MVD suspension, it is better to seek legal help than to continue driving with a suspended license. Anyone who gets caught driving with a suspended license in Arizona faces serious penalties, including possible impounding of the vehicle and further license suspension for up to one additional year.

MVD Driver’s License Suspension And Revocation In Arizona
Driver’s license suspension and driver’s license revocation are two different types of actions in Arizona. A suspension has a specific start and end date, after which you may apply for reinstatement and pay necessary fees. Driver’s license revocation lasts for an indefinite period. There is a minimum revocation period, after which the individual must go through an MVD investigation to determine whether reinstatement is appropriate. If approved, the driver must pay applicable fees.
An Arizona driver’s license may be suspended for a number of reasons, including:
- Failure to successfully complete traffic school
- Reckless driving conviction
- DUI conviction
- Underage alcohol consumption
- Failure to pay court-ordered child support
- Accumulation of eight or more points on your driving record in a 12-month period
An experienced MVD lawyer can help you work to minimize suspension and revocation periods after a points suspension, a DUI suspension or a suspension for any other reason.
