Habitual Traffic Offender

In order to qualify as a Habitual Traffic Offender, a driver in Colorado must have three (3) or more convictions of certain offenses within a seven (7) year period. There are numerous habitual offenses in Colorado. The following offenses qualify as “Habitual Offenses”: vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, DUI, driving under revocation, driving under suspension, driving under restraint, DWAI, DUI per se, false affirmation or false swearing regarding administration of motor vehicle laws, aggravated motor vehicle theft, hit and run resulting in death, hit and run resulting in injury, reckless driving, and manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide related to the operation of a motor vehicle.

Aside from false affirmation or false swearing regarding the administration of motor vehicle laws, Colorado will consider a driver’s prior convictions from another state, under any federal law, and under any municipality.

A driver may also qualify as a Habitual Traffic Offender is she is convicted of a minimum of ten (10) four (4) point (or more) tickets in a period of five (5) years. This provision includes the habitual offenses listed above. Or, a person may be deemed to be a Habitual Traffic Offender if he is convicted of a minimum of eighteen (18) infractions with three (3) or fewer points each in a five (5) year period. This provision also includes the offenses listed above.

The Colorado DMV will immediately revoke the driver’s license of a Habitual Offender for a period of five (5) years.

Colorado Traffic Ticket Attorney Monte Robbins defends clients who are charged as a Habitual Traffic Offender. Attorney Robbins realizes that Colorado drivers especially depend upon their driver’s license and that a five-year revocation is a very harsh sentence. In some cases, Attorney Robbins may be able to reinstate a person’s driver’s license early, instead of waiting out the five-year revocation period. If you or a loved one has been charged as a Habitual Traffic Offender, call Attorney Robbins for a free case evaluation at 303-355-5148, or 970-301-5541.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
