  • Suspend your license to drive for 15 days.
    • Some speeding tickets in Wisconsin require a 15-day suspension of your license to drive.
    • For example, driving 25 or more miles over the speed limit
    • Most importantly, during the 15-day suspension you will not be able to drive to and from work. Also, you will also not be able to drive to the gas station or the grocery store. In addition, you will not be able to drive to and from school.
      • In other words, you cannot drive for any reason.

  • Suspend your license to drive for one year.
    • This occurs if you get 12 or more points in one year.
      • Because Wisconsin has a points system for traffic tickets.
      • Traffic tickets that result in points against your license are called “moving violations.”
      • Some of the most common moving violations are:
        • Speeding:
          • 1-10 MPH over the limit: 3 points
          • 11-19 MPH over the limit: 4 points
          • 20+ over the limit: 6 points
          • Reckless Driving is 6 points
    • However, you can get an occupational license immediately.
      • An occupational license allows you to drive to work and to run errands that are necessary for your daily life.
      • More info about occupational licenses is available here.

  • Drivers license suspension for up to one year
    • Section 343.30(1) allows a court to suspend your operating privilege for violating any state traffic law.
    • So Wisconsin courts have authority to suspend your license for up to one year.
