Your license may still be suspended for several other reasons. For example, if you are required to have financial responsibility insurance, called SR-22 insurance, for high-risk drivers, or if you failed to pay child support.
DOL can also suspend your license if you get too many traffic tickets in a short period of time (six or more within one year or seven or more within two years).
For information about SR-22 insurance for high-risk drivers, visit the DOL's website.
To understand license suspensions for failure to pay child support, read Child Support and License Suspension. You can also visit the DOL's page regarding this.
Carry another form of identification until you get your license back.I have never had a driver’s license but due to unpaid tickets, I’m currently not eligible to get a license. Can I get a license now?
If you have never been a licensed driver in Washington or any other state and you got a traffic ticket, DOL suspended your driving privileges. Check your status at the DOL's website, because you may now be eligible to get your license.
If you are now eligible, you can take the written and driving tests to get your license. To learn about testing requirements, costs, and locations, visit the DOL's website.
