What does indefinite revocation of a drivers license mean?

It means you can't legally drive for awhile. When your drivers license is suspended or revoked for an indefinite period of time, you are fully subject to the court orders pertaining to your legal case.

Laws vary widely from state to state, but some common reasons for a suspended license include DUI infractions and reckless driving charges. Some reasons for a revoked license include vehicular homicide, hit-and-run charges, or grossly excessive point accumulations. For a better understanding of your driving record, order a copy online and review the information pertaining to your license status, and any accident information or traffic violations.

Rules for reinstating your driving privileges also vary from state to state, so check with your DMV. You will probably be required to pay certain fees, surrender any old licenses, complete any court-ordered treatment programs, and, especially with DWI offenders, install an ignition interlock device.

Some states do offer a probationary license that allows you to drive to and from work during a period of indefinite revocation. Again, check with your DMV for specific information.
