Losing your driving privileges can be costly. In order to reinstate your license, the DMV may add fines, order you to pay for a complete driving classes, order you to retake your written and/or driving test; limit your driving to certain destinations; and/or order you to obtain a certificate of financial responsibility. In addition to the penalties issued by the DMV, driving while your license is suspended for certain crimes carries a 30 day to 6 month jail sentence.
