A judgment debtor’s drivers license suspension can only be attempted if the cause of action for the judgment involved an automobile accident, when the damages are above a certain amount. In California, the laws state that the driver’s license for the registered vehicle owner, and the driver, may be suspended for up to six years; or until the judgment is satisfied.

Just that DMV notification of one’s DL-30 request, may get your debtor to settle with you.
You will get the DL-30 from the DMV’s website. Fill in the shape, and take it to your court, and pay them about $37.50. The court signs the DL-30 form, and attaches an avowed copy of the judgment; and then stamps the DL-30 form.

Some judgment debtors don’t worry about their driver’s license getting revoked, and some keep on driving against regulations; others let someone else drive them around. And, because this tactic doesn’t directly force the debtor to pay you, this may be some of those things that sounds better theoretically, than the results it brings.
