Driving on a Suspended License (Vehicle Code Section 14601)

A person’s license can be suspended for a variety of reasons.

However, if the District Attorney cannot prove that the client received NOTICE of the suspension then the charge must be dismissed. The DMV can send notice of the suspension to the client, however this does not constitute notice unless the person receiving the letter officially acknowledges receipt of the letter by sending back proof that he received it. Sometimes the DMV will serve notice of a license suspension in person using the police or CA DMV personnel.

Contact Orange County criminal defense attorney Katie Walsh if you need help with driving on a suspended license or any other criminal matter.
