A: Yes/Maybe - but you should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that happens. After you have been cited, you must challenge the MVD's admin per se within a certain amount of time, at which point you will be able to extend/prolong/dismiss the suspension. f not dismissed, you will have a 90 day suspension, of which, 60 days you can have a restricted license that allows you to drive to school and work. However, every situation is different and you should strongly consider speaking with myself or another attorney that offers free consultations.
