St Louis Traffic Tickets: How Do I Take Care Of A Driving While Suspended Ticket?


Traffic tickets for driving while suspended in St Louis is a big deal. In fact, most jurisdictions within the state of Missouri regard such an infraction as a misdemeanor. And if you do not get it taken care of as quickly as possible, then you will be facing some fairly severe repercussions in the immediate future.

The infraction of Driving While Suspended in St. Louis simply means that you were caught driving during a time when you driving privileges had been either revoked or suspended (because of an active warrant for you arrest, or because you’ve received too many points over a short period of time, or because of a DUI that you got within the last year).

This ticket comes with 12 (twelve) points. And if those points go on your driving record, you will very likely be suspended once again (for at least another year). So it makes all the sense in the world to secure the aid of an experienced St Louis traffic ticket lawyer!!


Most DWS tickets can be handled by an attorney by getting a Letter of Compliance from the municipality that is holding things up. Here’s an example: let’s say you received a speeding ticket somewhere in St Louis, but you never got it taken care of. As a result, the court date comes and goes, and now there is a warrant out for your arrest. When an active warrant is in place, the state will very often suspend your driver’s license. Sometime in the future you get pulled over for running a stop sign. The cop runs a quick background check, sees that your license is suspended, then writes you a ticket for not only the stop sign infraction, but for driving while your privileges were suspended.

But if your attorney can get the warrant lifted, and secure a Letter of Compliance from the original municipality, then he/she can work closely with the local prosecutor to get the DWS amended.
