Revocation:  A mandatory restraint action on a valid driver's license or driving privilege.  A revoked license is invalid and cannot be re-issued.  After reinstatement of your driving privilege you must re-test (both written and drive) to be issued a new license.

Suspension:  A temporary withdrawal of the driving privilege.  A suspension is a restraint action but does not void the driver's license.  A valid license may be re-issued upon reinstatement.  A license that has expired must be renewed upon reinstatement.  Point suspensions require a written test at renewal.

Denial:  A restraint action when no valid license exists at the time of restraint.

Cancellation/Denial:  Actions to void a license and deny the driving privilege.  Reinstatement is required and passing of a written and a road test is mandatory.

Cancellation:  This action will void a valid license.  A cancellation by itself is not a restraint action and does NOT require reinstatement if complied with in a timely manner.  Another license/permit may be issued, unless the reason for cancellation is still outstanding.

Note: Please check with your specific State DMV for additional information.
