REASONS FOR LICENSE SUSPENSIONS

There are a variety of different reasons for which a driver may have his or her license suspended, including:

  • Accumulation of points for traffic violations;
  • A conviction for driving under the influence;
  • Criminal convictions;
  • Refusing to submit to a blood alcohol concentration test;
  • Defaulting on child support payments;
  • Failing to maintain minimum car insurance requirements;
  • Nonpayment of a judgment; and
  • Revocation of probation.

One of the most common reasons for a license suspension is the accumulation of points. In Ohio, points are assessed to a driver’s license for certain traffic violations, with each violation carrying its own point value. If a driver accrues 12 points within a two-year period, his or her license may be suspended. For instance, drivers who flee a law enforcement officer will be assigned six points, while a charge of driving while intoxicated carries four points. However, most moving violations result in the assessment of between two and three points.

  • One to five years, for being stopped on a suspicion of driving while intoxicated and refusing a BAC test;
  • Ninety days to five years, for failing a BAC test;
  • Six months, for violating a driver’s license restriction; and
  • An indefinite period of up to two years, for failing to maintain car insurance.

WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS

Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.
