-Operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI);
-Failure to stop when you are driving a vehicle involved in a crash (hit-and-run offense);
-Driving when your driver’s license is already suspended or revoked;

If your driving privilege is going to be suspended or revoked, a written notice will be mailed to you listing the date when the suspension or revocation will begin. Your driver’s license must be returned to the Bureau of Driver Licensing by the effective date of suspension listed on the notice, or the state police and local police will be notified to pick up the driver’s license.
