When the Department of Motor Vehicles suspends your license, you may or may not receive a notification. People often fail to receive proper notice and don’t even know that their license has been suspended. Others, however, do know their license is suspended and drive anyway. Regardless of what caused your license to be suspended or if you were aware of the suspension, you will have to go to the DMV and pay for the license to be reinstated, and, in many cases, a waiting period must go by or you may have to complete some type of alcohol or drug counseling—if your suspension is a result of an alcohol or drug-related offense.
