License suspensions can vary greatly in terms of length. Even after you suspension or revocation expires, you may be subject to a reinstatement fee and other penalties. These can range from $400 following an ALS suspension to 180 days in jail and up to a $1,000 fine for first-degree misdemeanors while driving under suspension. Certain situations, such as accumulating too many points or driving under the influence, may also call for you to complete other conditions before you receive a new license. These can include:
