Revoked Driver’s License 

Worcester Revoked Driver’s License

Criminal Defense Law Firm Serving Massachusetts

Your driver’s license can be suspended or revoked for criminal and civil reasons that may not be related to driving offenses. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, we provide criminal defense services to clients in the state of Massachusetts. Call our Worcester criminal defense lawyers today at (508) 744-3038 to learn how we can help.

Common violations that may result in a suspended license include:

  • Failing to pay traffic tickets

  • Failing to pay child support


  • Too many criminal traffic violations, such as OUI (DUI in other states)


  • Civil traffic violations such as speeding


  • Committing driver’s license fraud


  • Improperly operating a vehicle

Also, if the court considers you a threat, it may suspend your license for a certain period of time. Regardless of the reason you lost your license, our Worcester criminal defense attorneys can represent you at Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) hearings. We can appeal the charges to seek a hardship license that allows you to drive during certain hours to get to work, school, or medical appointments.

Consequences of a Revoked License

Because there is limited public transportation in Worcester, getting around without a license is extremely difficult. Depending on the circumstances, your license suspension period may range from a few months to a few years. In extreme cases, your license may be revoked for life unless you complete a Driver Retraining Program.

Violations and suspension periods in Massachusetts include:

  • Three speeding tickets in 12 months = mandatory 30-day suspension

  • Three surchargeable events in 24 months = indefinite suspension until the driver takes a Driver Retraining Program


  • Five surchargeable events in three years = indefinite suspension until the driver takes a Driver Retraining Program


  • Seven surchargeable events in three years = mandatory 60-day suspension


  • Three major moving violations or a combination of 12 major and minor violations in five years = four-year revoked driver’s license

In addition to these violations, you may have your license revoked for OUI convictions. If you are over 21 and it is your first OUI offense, your will face a 180-day suspension, and if you are under 21 and it is your first offense, you will face a three-year suspension. The Worcester criminal defense lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can work hard to protect your license and discuss your options for reinstating it.
