Below is a link to DPS (The Texas Deparatment of Public Safety) website giving very useful Texas drivers license information. Deals with all kinds of suspensions and other issues.
The information below is from the above referenced article.
- A suspension period is generally a set suspension time with a beginning date and an ending date.
- A revocation or cancellation is an indefinite suspension period that requires the subject to comply/submit items to lift the revocation or cancellation of the license.
- A Disqualification disqualifies a person from operating a commercial motor vehicle, or applying for a commercial driver license. A person may still operate a non-commercial motor vehicle while under a disqualification. There is a beginning date and an ending date to the disqualification period and does not require reinstatement items to be submitted to the Department.
- A Deny Renewal means a person has been denied the renewal of their driver license or the issuance of a driver license if the person is not currently licensed, until the person submits or complies with a requirement.
- A Probation for an Administrative Suspension (i.e., Habitual Traffic Violations, Violate License Restriction) means a person’s driver license suspension was probated. A probation period has a beginning date and an ending date and does not require reinstatement items to be submitted to the Department. The person is legally entitled to drive during this probationary period provided no other suspensions are in effect and the license is not expired.
