Friend ran into pole, will he get his license taken away?

Asked about 1 year ago - Mason City, IA

He has an intermediate license, got a restriction for running a red light 2 months ago and now he ran into a pole. What is likely to happen to his license and is there anyway he can work out a deal? Having a car is needed for his job.

Additional information

He wasn't under the influence of anything, the restriction on his license was taken off after a month.

    Answered . What was he charged with? If he wasn't cited for anything, then there's nothing upon which the court may act. If he received a ticket, have him consult with a traffic lawyer. Most of them offer free consultations.

    Answered . If he was cited for the moving violation, then he is subject to having the intermediate license suspended or withdrawn if he pleads guilty or is convicted of a moving violation. I believe your friend must be free from any moving violations for 12 months before he can apply for a full licence at age 18. I suggest that he consult with an attorney who specializes in traffic offenses for a consultation.

    Answered . He could. Did he receive a traffic citation for anything. If no citation was received then unlikely.
