14. Suspend, Revoke, Enforce

When the DMV suspends or revokes a license (usually by notification in mail), the license must be surrendered.

The penalties for driving without a license or on a suspended or revoked license include jail time, substantial fines, and impoundment of the vehicle being driven.

Altering or possessing an altered driver license can result in jail time and may result in license suspension or revocation. It is unlawful to possess a driver's license that is invalid or has been altered. Your license can also be revoked if you write incorrect information on your driver license application.

When a law enforcement vehicle pulls behind you and turns on their red lights, you are being pulled over for a traffic stop. Begin by slowing down and signaling your intention to pull to the right and stop.

It is against the law to take evasive action in an effort to avoid a law enforcement stop.

Never go to the left or onto a median, unless ordered to do so. Get as far over to the right-hand side of the street, road, or highway as you can, and stop your vehicle completely.

If you are being pulled over for a traffic stop on a freeway, pull completely onto the shoulder before stopping. If the officer uses a loudspeaker to direct you to the next exit and off the freeway, do as instructed.

If you do not feel safe stopping on the side of the road because it is dark, isolated, or if there is not enough room, you should still signal your intention to pull over. Signal, slow down, and use a hand wave to indicate to the law enforcement officer your intention to proceed to a freeway exit, well-lit area, or other safer place to stop.

Once you have pulled to the right and stopped, keep your hands on the steering wheel and wait for the officer to let you know what to do.

Turn off your vehicle's ignition, but do not begin fishing around in your car for your insurance, license, or registration until instructed to do so.

If you are being stopped at night, it is a good idea to turn on your inside or dome light so that the officer can see you. Remember to keep both of your hands on the steering wheel until instructed to do differently.

Follow the officer's instructions until they indicate you are free to proceed, then continue carefully and safely on your way.
