Suspensions & Revocations

Placeholder Alaska Other

A suspended or revoked license must be turned in to the department. A period of sus- pension or revocation will continue beyond the ending date unless you properly reinstate your driving privileges and you file proof of financial responsibility for the future. Anytime your privilege to drive is suspended, revoked, or limited, you will be required to carry financial responsibility for the future after the license action is over. Proof of financial responsibility for the future is usually provided to the Division of Motor Vehicles by sub- mitting an “SR22” insurance filing form. This type of insurance filing requires the insur- ance company to notify the Division of Motor Vehicles if your liability insurance coverage lapses or is cancelled.

SUSPENSION

The privilege of operating a motor vehicle is temporarily taken away. At the end of the suspension, and upon meeting any reinstatement requirements, you must apply for a duplicate license at one of our field offices. Driving privileges must be suspended for:

  1. Operating or owning an uninsured vehicle involved in a crash.
  2. Repeated violations of the motor vehicle laws (accumulation of points).
  3. Driving in violation of license restrictions.

REVOCATION

The privilege of operating a motor vehicle is taken away and the license is revoked. At the end of revocation, when reinstatement requirements are met, a new license may be obtained.

Driving privileges must be revoked for the following court convictions:

  1. Driving while under the influence, or refusal to take a chemical test
  2. Driving while license is cancelled, suspended, or revoked.
  3. Reckless driving.
  4. Failure to stop and render aid at the scene when involved in a personal injury crash.
  5. Perjury (giving untrue information relating to motor vehicles to the department).
  6. Unlawful flight by motor vehicle to avoid arrest.
  7. Felony in connection with a motor vehicle causing injury or death such as Manslaughter, Negligent Homicide, or Assault with a vehicle.

The Division of Motor Vehicles must revoke driving privileges, administratively, for the following offenses:

  1. Refusal to submit to a chemical test following an arrest for driving under the influence.
  2. Breath test result of .08 or higher (or .04 or higher if operating a commercial motor vehicle) following an arrest for driving under the influence.
  3. Habitual violations of motor vehicle laws.
  4. (2 point suspensions in a 24 month period.)
  5. Minors (under 21) operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol.
  6. Minors (under 21) refusal to submit to chemical testing.
  7. Minors (under 21) using a false driver’s license to obtain alcohol.
  8. The Division of Motor Vehicles has the authority to take independent action against your driving privileges regardless of the outcome of any related court proceeding. A reinstatement fee is required following any suspension, revocation, or limitation.
