During the probationary period, you must be careful about moving violations. If you are convicted of any of the following offenses while on probation, your license will be suspended for 60 days. Texting and cell phone tickets have even more severe penalties (see below).
• Speeding (any speed)
• Reckless driving
• Tailgating (or following too closely)
• Participating in a speed contest; or
• Two other moving violations
When the revocation or suspension period is completed, you will be on probation for another six months. If you are found guilty of committing one of the above violations, or two other moving violations during a second probation period, your license will be revoked for at least six months. When the revocation or suspension ends, you will be on probation for another six months.
Your driver’s license will be suspended for ninety days if you are convicted of driving while ability impaired (DWAI) by alcohol or drugs during probation, or revoked for at least six months for driving while intoxicated (DWI). Even if you complete an approved Drinking Driver Program in fewer days, your license suspension or revocation will continue until the end of the scheduled period of suspension or revocation.
For a texting/cell phone violation during the probation period, the penalty is 2x severe. Specifically, your license will be suspended for 120 days (not 60).
