Operating After Revocation in Wisconsin

If you have been charged with driving after your license has been revoked, it is important to understand the implications and possible consequences of this charge.
License Revocation

There are several reasons why your license could have been revoked or suspended. Some of the most common include:

  • An OWI conviction or other drunk driving offenses
  • An accumulation of too many demerit points on your driving record within one year

If the reason for the person being revoked was an OWI-related conviction, the offense is a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine up to $2,500 and/or one year in jail. If the reason for being revoked is not an OWI-related conviction, the person faces a forfeiture of up to $2,500.
