A suspension has a specific start and end date. When the suspension period ends,
the licensee pays the reinstatement fee and any reapplication fees to restore
his/her driving privilege.
Revocations are indefinite. There is a minimum length of time, usually one to
three years, but the action does not automatically end on that date. The individual
must go through an investigation process to determine whether it would be safe
to restore his/her driving privilege. If approved for reinstatement, he/she would
pay reinstatement and reapplication fees.
