Driving is a privilege, not a right. Like all privileges, your privilege to drive can be taken away from you if you abuse it. In other words, your license will be suspended and you'll no longer be allowed to drive. We can help you re-attain your license to operate a motor vehicle again.

Suspension and/or Disqualification Dates
Under Louisiana driving law, the surrender of an individual's physical driver's license will not be required to begin the period of suspension and/or disqualification. In accordance with Louisiana traffic laws, the suspension and/or disqualification dates can be given…
• upon receipt of the individual's most current operator's license (in-state or out-of-state),
• upon expiration of the operator's license
• on the date a statement of non-possession is received,
• after the expiration date of the prior suspension or disqualification, or
• 30 days after the date of the notice of suspension.
EACH conviction of driving under suspension will cause your suspension period to be extended for one year. Driving while your license is suspended will be cause for arrest, a court fine and/or time in jail.
In accordance with Louisiana driving law, upon expiration of any suspension period, a reinstatement fee will be required before your driving privileges can be reinstated.
