Why Is My Driver’s License Suspended in Massachusetts?

An individual’s driver’s license may be suspended for a number of reason, including:

In fact, it is quite possible to be pulled over and charged with this crime without knowing that your license had been suspended. For example, an unpaid speeding ticket and RMV notices sent to a prior address may result in a suspended driver’s license.  In addition, once the Massachusetts Registry suspends a license, the suspension will remain in effect until the operator takes action to reinstate the license.
