14. Suspension, Revocation, Enforcement

When DMV suspends or revokes a license (usually by notification in mail), the license must be surrendered. If you are caught later driving with a suspended or revoked license, the vehicle used can be impounded and sold.


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.


A vehicle you own can be impounded if driven by a person with a suspended or revoked license and if you allow a minor without a license or permit to drive it.


Altering or possessing an altered driver license can result in jail time, and may result in license suspension or revocation. It is unlawful to display to others or have in your possession a driver's license that is invalid or has been altered.


The consequences of a misstatement on a driver license application may include revocation of the license privilege.


Law enforcement uses red lights to pull drivers over because of a suspected traffic, equipment, or other legal violation. It is against the law to take or attempt evasive action in an effort to avoid a law enforcement stop.


When a law enforcement vehicle pulls behind you and turns on one or more 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.


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, simply 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 he or she indicates you are free to proceed, then continue carefully and safely on your way.
