Being charged with or convicted of certain types of crimes in Colorado can result not only in jail time, fines, or other court-imposed penalties, but also in the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. If you rely on your license to get to work, take your kids to school, or do any of the other daily tasks of living, losing your license can pose a serious hardship.
Some of the criminal convictions and other situations that can affect your driver’s license include:
- Alcohol-related convictions, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI).
- Driving privileges that are suspended or revoked in another state. Colorado may not issue you a license, or may suspend or revoke your Colorado license, if your license in another state has been suspended or revoked.
- Aggravated motor vehicle theft or felonies involving a motor vehicle – if you’re convicted of one of these, your driver’s license may be suspended or revoked as well.
- Falling behind on child support payments. Colorado may suspend or revoke your license if you fall behind on child support payments. This situation can further prevent you from getting to work so that you can make the money you need to support your children.
