How long will my driver's license be suspended if I am convicted of Reckless Driving in violation of Connecticut General Statute 14-222?
For a first conviction of reckless driving in Connecticut Superior Court, part of your penalty would include a suspension of your driver's license for not less than 30 days nor more than 90 days. (Note: you won't find any information about license suspension in the reckless driving statute. For that, you have to look at Connecticut General Statute 14-111, Suspension or revocation of registration, license, or right to operate.)
For a second conviction of reckless driving, your license would be suspended for 90 days.
If you’re convicted of reckless driving and were less than 18 years of age at the time of the offense in violation of 14-222 (a), your license would be suspended for six months for a first violation and for one year for a second conviction.
