Violating a Suspended License in CT

If you’re like most people in Connecticut, you know that your driver license can be suspended for OUI or having too many speeding tickets, but you may not realize that there are actually more than a dozen reasons why a license can be suspended. These include but are not limited to:

  • Reckless driving
  • Racing on a public road
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Failure to pay child support
  • Failing to complete a mandatory car seat safety class
  • Lying about facts when applying for a driver license
  • Minor in possession of alcohol in a vehicle
  • Four or more speeding conviction in two years
  • Too many points on driving record leading to suspension
  • Second-degree manslaughter with a motor vehicle
  • Failure to appear in court or pay required fines
  • Using another’s license or registration
  • Failure to maintain liability insurance
  • Fleeing or evading the police or a roadblock
  • Paying a driver license application fee with a bad check

It can be very tempting for people to drive on a suspended license; however, when they do they are breaking the law. The basic penalties for driving on a suspended license include a fine up to $200, or up to 90 days in jail, or a fine and imprisonment.

Repeat offenders face stiffer penalties. If it’s a second or subsequent violation, a repeat offender faces a fine up to $600, or up to one year in jail, or both. However, if the offender’s license was suspended because of an alcohol-related offense, the law imposes stiffer penalties against the accused.
