Driving While Suspended or Revoked


Driving after suspension or revocation is one of the most serious traffic tickets under Missouri law. This violation is a 12-point offense, which means that a one-year suspension can go into effect regardless of the length of the suspension you were on previously. Driving after suspension or revocation is also a criminal misdemeanor, which means that you can end up with a criminal record, a fine and the risk of jail time, which increases with subsequent offenses.
