Driving With a Suspended License and Insurance Points

Driving with a suspended driver’s license is a serious charge. The ramifications of a conviction are significant, and at best will extend the time of your revocation or suspension, and at worst may cost you your driving privileges forever. Regardless of your circumstances, if you are ever permitted to drive again, it will cost your eight (8) insurance points, which translates into an increase in insurance rates of 220%! That means for every $100.00 you now pay, you will be paying $320.00.

  • Dropping out of school
