If a student pays a ticket or is otherwise convicted on a traffic matter, there are usually DMV consequences that result from the conviction, like driver's license points. Too many driver's license points will cause a license suspension.

A person's license can also be taken away for other reasons, like driving with a high blood alcohol content, missing a court date, getting more than one Minor in Possession (MIP) conviction or getting a DUI conviction.

Students who think they might be in danger of losing their licenses should contact Student Legal Services about their situations. We can help prepare students for their driver's license hearings. Students may also be able to hire us to represent them at their hearings.


Student Legal Services may also be able to help with other types of administrative hearings for qualifying students, such as Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) disciplinary boards.
