Know your driver’s license status today, so you do not get arrested this summer.
“Every summer, my office is inundated with calls for help because a father, son, or husband got locked up for driving with a suspended license. At that point, there is no choice except to go through the legal system. It is traumatic, stressful, and very expensive to resolve, but all of it can be avoided entirely by checking your driver’s license, for free, with my office,” said Senator Felder.
Check if your license is 100% clean, at no cost:
1. Call Senator Felder at 718-253-2015 or email Felder@NYSenate.gov
2. Provide your name, address, and driver’s license number
Thanks to a partnership with the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles, we will check your driver’s license and if it is suspended, we will give you all the information you need to fix the problem.
“Anyone pulled over for a minor traffic violation and found to have a suspended license gets arrested for unlicensed operating of a vehicle. People make mistakes, they miss the official notice sent by mail, and you will only know if you check,” cautions Senator Felder.
Restoring your driving privilege is now much more affordable with income-based payment plans offered by DMV, under a new law co-sponsored by Senator Felder.
Drivers’ information is also accessible online when you register a myDMV account at www.dmv.ny.gov
