When I was a minor I had two traffic offenses, one was a ticket for following too closely to another vehicle. The other was a reckless driving ticket for speeding; this one I had to go to court for. Without leniency I received a court ordered 120 day suspension and a traffic class. 1 month later the DMV sent me a letter to tell me that under their order they are suspending me for 210 days for receiving 2 violations and a court suspension. Fast track to now and I am not a minor and have 1 month left of my suspension and am desperately in need of a job and am also unable to attend college if I have no form of transportation, which I currently don't unless I can drive myself there. Is there anything I can do to waive 1 month off of my DMV suspension?
DMV will not waive your suspension period. Additionally, when the DMV suspends your license for too many points or, as in your case, 2 violations and a court suspension, the DMV will usually require you to complete a Driver Improvement Class. I would check with the DMV as to whether you have to complete a class. Failure to complete any DMV requirement will prolong your suspension.
DMV is a law unto themselves. I know of no legal option for you to shorten their imposed suspension, and I do not anticipate that DMV would be persuaded by pleas for mercy.
Unfortunately, the suspension period cannot be shortened. When you are eligible to have your driving privileges restored, however, make sure to pay DMV the reinstatement fee because you will not automatically be reinstated.
