- The court is required to report certain convictions to the DLD, which can trigger a driver license suspension. These include DUIs, drug-related offenses, and alcohol offenses involving minors.
- A plea in abeyance will prevent a conviction from being reported, thus saving your driving privileges.
- A probation violation can terminate a plea in abeyance and create a conviction, which will force a reporting to the DLD, which can then suspend or revoke a driver license.
- Driving suspension is temporary and is reinstated once the terms of probation are completed; revocation requires re-licensing, which means new fees and re-testing.
