A Person Who is Charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon May Be Surprised When their Driving Privilege is Suspended for Life

By: Wallin & Klarich

In some situations, being convicted of assault with a deadly weapon may result in serious penalties. Most people are generally aware of the potential consequences associated with a conviction for assault with a deadly weapon. A person convicted of assault with a deadly weapon may be unfortunate enough to get a lifetime suspension of driving privileges by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Under California law, the Department of Motor Vehicles must suspend for life the driving privilege of a person convicted of assault with a deadly weapon when a vehicle is used as the deadly weapon or instrument in that offense. The new law holds that a felony conviction will result in a lifetime revocation of the driving privileges of the person convicted.
