Taking care of your license should be something that you need to look into. Getting them was really a challenge in itself so I am sure that you would want to keep it that way in order to be able to legally drive around the state in your car without any restrictions. The sad thing is that you may not realize how important something is until you actually lose it. Think about the times that you use your car. You may be using it for work, for taking the kids to school and perhaps taking the occasional drive to the golf course to help you relax every once in a while. Unfortunately you will no longer be able to do all those things if you get your license suspended.
You can go about applying for a restricted license which is a bit tedious to apply for which is actually quite ironic. It is really hard to apply for it but it can be really easy to lose it. Once you find yourself in a jam of having your license suspended then you really have to make an effort to work on getting your license back. If you happen to accept the penalty then you have some work to do.
The very first thing you have to do is to verify the details of the suspension of your license. You need to look into the details of the county that issued you the suspension as well as the duration. There may be times wherein you may have gotten more than just a suspension so you need to know that as well. If you are required to pay a fine or do community work then go ahead and do it or else you might be saying goodbye to your license for good. Once the suspension is over you can then start the process of getting it back. The process may be entirely different for each state but in general you will be required to get in touch with the office that issued you the suspension. You can then provide all the documentation that proves that you have completed the requirements for the suspension to be lifted and this includes a fee. Some states would have to require you to show your SR-22 again along with the reinstatement request.
In general it is relatively easy to keep your license. You did pass the exam which means you are aware of the things that are required to be a responsible motorist. As long as you keep it that way then you are golden.
