Don't Take on the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles by Yourself
In Massachusetts, the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is responsible for licensing drivers. Driving in the Commonwealth is a privilege, not a right, and the RMV can take that privilege away for a variety of reasons. It can either suspend your license for a set period of time or it can permanently revoke your license and stop you from driving.
You could lose your driving privileges for a year or more following convictions for motor vehicle theft, leaving the scene, vehicular manslaughter or homicide, and a wide range of drunk driving (OUI/DUI) and drug charges. The RMV will also suspend or revoke your ability to drive if you are caught using a fake ID. If you have a commercial driver's license, revocation or suspension can mean the loss of your livelihood.

Hardship License Is Not Automatic. You Must Fight for It.
Your best option when your license has been suspended is to apply for a hardship license that will allow you to drive to work. To get such a license, you must make a strong case that you have no other way to get to work or to medical appointments. These licenses are not issued routinely — you will need to make your case. This includes getting a required letter from your employer that outlines why you need the hardship license. Our lawyers will help you obtain this letter.
Surprised by Your License Suspension or Revocation? Call Our Attorneys Right Away
You may not even know that your license is at risk until it's too late. The RMV tracks what it calls "surchargeable events" that collectively result in your license suspension or revocation. Such events include insurance claims, accidents and traffic violations. Individually, they have little effect on your license, but when such events accumulate, you may need an RMV hearing to preserve your ability to drive. If your revocation or suspension comes as a surprise, contact a lawyer right away to find out about your options.
