St Louis Driving While Suspended $185: Does a Driving While Suspended Ticket Mean I Can Never Drive Again?


No, that is not the case at all!! In fact, there is a good chance that you can get back out on the road driving with a valid license sooner than you think! But it requires that you get in touch with us as soon as possible. Because most jurisdictions consider a St Louis Driving While Suspended ticket as a Class A Misdemeanor.

First of all, a Class A Misdemeanor in the state of Missouri can come with up to one (1) full year of jail time and a $1,000 fine. And if you were to plead guilty to this sort of charge, it would become a part of your permanent driving record. In addition, the Department of Revenue would assess twelve (12) points to your record.

“Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver. It is the existence of points on your record that causes your automobile insurance to skyrocket (by as much as 35%, depending on how many points you currently have already).


So the best option available is to contact us immediately!! We can figure out why your driver’s license was suspended in the first place, then work out a plan to get the license reinstated. Once this plan is set into motion, we can negotiate a deal with the local prosecutor to get the ticket reduced to a non-moving violation.

Once the ticket is reduced in this manner, you will receive two benefits: 1) no points will go onto your driving record (which will ensure that your car insurance won’t go up); 2) you won’t have to worry about driving anymore on a suspended license.
