Does the State let you know and how? Is there anything you have to do after the suspension is up? Or is your license just reactivated?

Provided that you have notified MVA of your current address, then you should receive notification of a proposed suspension from them. It would give you an opportunity to contest the suspension or asked for a restricted license.

You should be notified by the Department of Motor vehicles if your license is suspended. You should check with the DMV about what to do after the suspension- you may have to file an application of some kind to get license back. You should hire an attorney that is familiar with DMV procedures. and disclose all the facts and circumstances.

In California, you are allowed 4 points in a 12 month period (like, 4 speeding ticket, or 2 reckless driving convictions). DMV will notify you of their intention to suspend your license beforehand. You may be able to challenge this, or request a restricted license. If it is suspended, you will have to apply to have your license returned, pay a reissue fee ($125 right now I think), and provide an SR22 form (insurance coverage). I suspect that DMV has information they can provide you on this topic.

    You should check with the DMV just to be sure whats happened with your license. Also, your license will ordinarily be reinstated automatically after the term of the suspension.

    The state will send a notice of suspension to the address contained in your driver record. As long as your address is up to date, you should receive notice of the suspension. A $125 reinstatement fee is usually required to clear the suspension after it expires.

    DMV will notify you if you have the correct address on your license. You can get a copy of your abstract from DMV and it will show you what you have to pay to clear your license. If it is revoked you have to re-apply to Albany. If it is suspended for a period of time it comes back after that period automatically. If you pay off fines they will lift the suspension immediately, but it may not show on the computer for a while so carry your receipt for the police.

    Do you mean for points or nonpayment? It will not be lifted until the tickets are taken care of. The other is usually for a term and you have to then apply to get the license back.

    The DMV will notify you by mail if your license has been suspended for accumulating too many points. They will also notify you of the length of the suspension and what you need to do to reinstate your license after the period of suspension is up. Read the paperwork carefully.

    You should receive a letter from the Secretary of State telling you your license has been suspended and instructions on how and when to get it back. You will probably have driver's responsibility fees to pay and maybe something else.
