Three Surchargeable Offenses Suspension
If you have received three surchargeable offenses on your Massachusetts driving record within a two year period, your license could be suspended. The Registry of Motor Vehicles will require that you complete a one day eight hour drivers retraining program offered by the National Safety Council. Even if you previously completed the program, the addition of one new offense could send you back to the class again.
Seven Surchargeable Offenses Suspension
Habitual Traffic Offender Suspension
If the Registry of Motor Vehicle receives notice that you have been found guilty or responsible for three major violations or a combination of 12 major or minor moving violations within five years, the RMV will susped your license and right to operate for four years. Under the Massachusetts Habitual Traffic Offender Law major offenses include conviction for operating under the influence, license fraud, driving to endanger, leaving the scene of an accident, driving after suspension or revocation, using a motor vehicle in the commission of a felony and driving without a license. Not only will a conviction in the state of Massachusetts count towards a Habitual Traffic Offender Suspension, but out of state convictions will count as well.
