Drivers License Suspension Attorney in Anderson

Indiana License Suspension Laws

Under Indiana law, reaching 18 points within a period of 2 years or being convicted of a DUI / OWI may result in a DMV Hearing and probation/license suspension anywhere between 30 days to 2 years. Points against your license remain on your driving record for 2 years.

A suspension results in your driving privileges being taken away for a certain period of time. Once a suspension expires, you will be able to get your license back. A revocation, on the other hand, means that your license has been canceled. You may need an attorney to fight for you to ensure that your driving privileges are not permanently taken away.

Indiana Specialized Driving Privileges

In the State of Indiana, the court may decide whether or not your charges deserve a license suspension. Depending on the circumstance of your case, the state may require that your license be suspended. A license suspension can affect your daily life, making everyday tasks like going to work, school or picking up your children a stressful hurdle. Indiana does offer you the ability to request specialized driving privileges.

You can request the court for specialized driving privileges to allow you to drive, even while your license is suspended. For example, you can ask the court for specialized driving privileges to be able to drive to work, doctor appointments, or other unique circumstances. Our firm can provide details regarding the official Indiana Specialized Driving Privileges process and procedures.

Having your license suspended can put your life on hold. Schedule a free consultation to protect your future!

How to Request Specialized Driving Privileges (SDP)

  • You are eligible for SDP if you held an Indiana operator or public passenger/chauffeur’s license at the time of your initial violation or offense that lead to your license being suspended. You are not eligible for SDP if you have never held a valid Indiana driver’s license, have a conviction for a driving offense that resulted in a person’s death, or if you have been granted SDP in the past and have more than one conviction as a result of violating SDP conditions.

How Long Do SDPs Last?

  • If the court grants your petition for SDP, your privileges will last for a minimum of 180 days. However, you can petition the court for a longer time period, depending on the circumstances. If your suspension happens to expire during your SDP period, you will be required to obey the SDP requirements until the SDP period expires.

What Are the SDP Requirements?

  • Courts grant SDP on a case-by-case basis, meaning that your SDP requirements may differ, depending on the particular circumstances of your case. However, common SDP requirements include: restricting vehicle use to a specific location and between certain hours, requiring you to follow all traffic laws, & requiring you to use an ignition interlock device that prevents your vehicle from being started by anyone under the influence of alcohol

Consequences of Violating SDP Requirements

  • If you are found to knowingly or intentionally violate any condition of your SDP, you may face a Class C misdemeanor. If you found to have violated the conditions of your SDP, the court may modify or revoke your SDP and may order the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) to re-suspend your driver’s license.
