A suspended license is generally temporary and for a set time period. Your license can then be reinstated after the suspension is over and you have paid the reinstatement fee. A revoked license has no set termination date. However, you may be able to reinstate your revoked license by applying to the Secretary of State, attending a hearing and presenting evidence that you now deserve to have your license returned. As the Secretary of State’s inclination is to say no, it helps to have an experienced attorney to guide you through the reinstatement process.
