Driving While Suspended in St. Louis County, MO - for as little as $225
Was your Missouri State driver’s license suspended? Did you get caught driving while suspended in St. Louis County, MO (or somewhere within the St. Louis region)? Was your license initially suspended because of too many points on your record? Was it suspended because there is an active warrant for your arrest? Or did you lose your license because you were in an automobile accident for which you were found liable? Or perhaps the loss of driving privileges is due to unpaid child support? Did you know that a St. Louis County, MO Driving While Suspended (DWS) ticket is not easy to handle on your own?
FEES FOR A STANDARD DWS START AT $225
The interesting part about a DWS is that no one is actually pulled over for driving on a suspended driver’s license. An individual is usually pulled over for some other reason (like speeding), and when the police officer runs your license, he/she discovers at that point that your driving privileges have been taken away. So in almost all cases, the person is facing at least two traffic tickets (the Driving While Suspended infraction, and some other kind of ticket).
Our firm handles St. Louis County, MO driving while suspended tickets frequently. But a DWS is a little bit different than your run-of-the-mill ticket. This is because the DWS ticket itself will not be reduced or amended by the court until your actual driver’s license is reinstated. So if for instance your license was initially suspended because of too many points assessed to your permanent driving record, then you will likely have to wait until the suspension period runs its course (usually a full year) before reinstatement can occur. Or if your license was suspended because of an outstanding warrant, the warrant will have to first be pulled, the underlying ticket will have to be amended (i.e. reduced to a non-moving violation), and you will have to pay the associated fine to the court, before reinstatement can happen.
Whatever the circumstances may be for your St. Louis County, MO driving while suspended ticket, it will be necessary for you to take certain steps in order to ensure that your driving privileges are given back. Because without these necessary steps having been first taken (or the requirements set by the state are not met), then you will unfortunately find yourself back in the same spot your started with (the risk you run by driving while your license is currently suspended).
