Alongside your Arizona driver permit comes the commitment to drive capably. "Driver Improvement" alludes to the methodology of distinguishing the individuals who are not driving mindfully and either rectifying their conduct or uprooting their benefit to drive in Arizona.
Revocation is the evacuation of your benefit to drive. It is needed by Arizona driving law, upon conviction of certain driving offenses. Under Arizona movement laws, once your repudiation period has finished, your driving benefits will stay disavowed until an examination is finished.
The examination is to confirm that all withdrawal activities have finished, and that all statutory prerequisites of the Arizona driving law are met. You will be obliged to pay the suitable application charge and a $20 reestablishment expense, and you may be obliged to record a Certificate of Insurance (normally known as a SR-22). Under Arizona movement laws, a composed, vision and street test may be needed.
- Any felony in which a vehicle is used
- Perjury relating to the ownership or operation of a vehicle
- Failure to stop and render aid at the site, if you are involved in a traffic accident
- Drive-by shooting
Your driving privilege will be revoked for two or more convictions of Arizona driving law violations for:
- Reckless driving
- Racing on the highways
In accordance with Arizona driving law, your driving privilege may also be revoked for:
- Failure to take and pass a required driving retest
- Medically, psychologically or physically incapable of operating a motor vehicle or continued operation of a motor vehicle which would endanger the public health, safety and welfare
Suspension and Traffic School
Suspension is the temporary removal of your driving privilege. It is an action that may be taken after a review of your driving record. In accordance with Arizona driving law, the suspension remains in effect until application for reinstatement is made.
In addition to the reinstatement fee, you must pay the appropriate license application fee for your age group.
Each time you are convicted or forfeit bail for a moving Arizona driving law violation, points are assessed against your permanent driving record. In accordance with Arizona traffic laws, if you accumulate 8 or more points within any 12-month period, you may be required to attend Traffic Survival School (TSS), or your driving privilege may be suspended up to 12 months.
In accordance with Arizona driving law, points are assessed as follows:
- DUI - 8
- Extreme DUI - 8
- Reckless driving - 8
- Racing on highways - 8
- Aggressive driving - 8
- Leaving the scene of accident - 6
- Failure to stop for a traffic signal, stop sign or to yield the right-of-way, causing death - 6
- Failure to stop for a traffic signal, stop sign or to yield the right-of-way, causing serious injury - 4
- Speeding - 3
- All other moving violations - 2
Arizona driving law stipulates that MVD may suspend or revoke your driving privilege or require you to attend and successfully complete an approved TSS if you:
- Have been convicted of frequent, serious offenses which show disrespect for Arizona driving law and a disregard for the safety of others
- Have been convicted of reckless driving or are a repeat reckless or negligent driver
- Are medically unsafe to drive a motor vehicle
- Have committed or permitted an unlawful or fraudulent use of your driver license
- Have an unresolved judgment from another state
- Have committed an offense for which mandatory revocation of the driving privilege is required upon conviction
Following the suspension or revocation period of your license you must pay the appropriate application fee to regain your license. In addition, you may be subject to an investigation and you may be required to file an SR-22 Insurance Certificate in accordance with Arizona driving law.
