3 hidden consequences of a suspended driver’s license

Like most motorists in Virginia, you probably do not give much thought to your driver’s license. After all, assuming you have one, you simply get behind the wheel of your car and hit the road. Suspended driver’s licenses in Virginia, however, are probably more common than you think. 

Dozens of motor vehicle infractions in the Old Dominion can cause authorities to revoke your driving privileges. While driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol may result in an immediate suspension, a pattern of bad driving could ultimately cause you to lose your Virginia driver’s license. Here are three hidden consequences of receiving a suspension. 

1. Employment 

If you drive professionally, you likely must have a license to do your job. Even if you do not deliver goods or chauffeur riders, however, you probably drive to work every day. Therefore, losing your driving privileges could cost you your job. 

2. Family 

As children grow, their needs change. Whether you are a soccer mom or caring dad, you probably drive your kids to appointments all the time. On the other hand, you may drive for miles to pick up your children pursuant to a custody agreement. Either way, if you cannot drive, your family life may suffer. 

3. Recreation 

Everyone needs some fun in life. While your hobbies may routinely confine you to your home, you eventually want to get away from the house. As you likely know, relying on ride shares can be both costly and inconvenient. As such, if you want to pursue your passions, you probably need to keep your driver’s license in good standing. 

Like most things, you may not appreciate your Virginia driving privileges until they are gone. If you have received a license suspension, you may not be out of luck. By understanding your legal options, you may be in a better position to restore your driving privileges.
