What are the most common reasons that licenses are suspended?

While there are numerous reasons to justify a suspended license some occur more often than others.

Failing to report to an accident: if you were involved in an automobile accident where a vehicle had to be towed, there was $1,500 or more in damages, or someone died or was injured you are required to file an accident report with the DMV. This is different than a report filed by police if they were called to the scene of the accident. Failure to report within that time period can result in a license suspension.

Failing to respond to a traffic citation: when you receive a traffic citation you are required to respond to it in the manner the court requires. Depending upon the severity of the ticket you may be required to attend a hearing. For less serious traffic offenses you may only be have to pay a fine within a certain time period either in person or through the mail. Failure to deal with a traffic citation can result in an indefinite license suspension. In order to have your license reinstated you will need to meet the requirements of the citation and pay any additional fees acquired from the suspension.

Failing to provide proof of financial responsibility: there are certain situations where a driver must provide proof of financial responsibility and file the necessary forms with the DMV. If you were convicted of reckless driving or driving while intoxicated you will be required to show proof of financial responsibility and file the DMV forms. Failure to do so will result in a suspended license until the forms are completed and have been processed by the DMV.

My license was suspended but I work and my vehicle was my transportation. Is there any way to get my license reinstated so I can drive myself to work?

A hardship permit allows you to drive between certain hours or to and from your job. This will likely depend upon the severity of the infraction that caused your license to be suspended.
