What is the difference between a suspension and a revocation?

Suspension of a driver's license means the temporary withdrawal of a license or privilege to operate a motor vehicle by formal action of the bureau or a court.

Revocation of a driver's license means the termination of a license or privilege to operate by formal action of the bureau or a court. A revoked license may not be restored or renewed but may only be regained by a new application.

Driving Records

A driving record or driving history is a list of tickets, suspensions and accidents for an individual driver. You can obtain a copy of your driving record online or in person at any branch office or mobile unit location. The fee for a 3 year record is $5.00 and the fee for a 10 year record is $10.00.
