Driving While License Invalid
A license can be invalid for many reasons. Driving While Intoxicated, Surcharges, unpaid reinstatement fees, and many other reasons can cause an invalidity. The key is understanding how to check the status of your license. In order to do so, you need the following information:
- DRIVER LICENSE NUMBER
- DATE OF BIRTH
- LAST 4 DIGITS OF SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER
If you have this information you can do a wellness check on the status of your license by inputting that information in the Texas Driver License Eligibility Site by clicking here. This page will show you whether or not your license is ineligible and if not why the license is ineligible. It will also outline steps you need to take to get your license back in good standing.
Traffic Ticket Convictions While Your Driver License Is Ineligible
The suspension that occurs due to a driving while license invalid issue normally is for 1 year. The issue of the suspension isn’t really based on the invalidity. This is why people get confused with this suspension action. It is due to being caught driving while your license is invalid. So how do people get caught? People get caught when they are pulled over and issued a traffic ticket while their license is invalid, and then let that traffic ticket become a conviction. It can be a ticket for something as insignificant as a busted tail light. But as soon as you pay that ticket off and it gets reported, then DPS knows that you were driving when you were not supposed to be driving. This then triggers the annual suspension. So the key is to fight every traffic ticket from ever being reported to DPS. Stay out of the system completely.
