Non-punitive Orders


These are orders issued by a state administrator that are not related to any crimes, and are not considered punishment. There are two non-punitive orders: withdrawal and cancellation. If an agent wants to withdraw their license, or cancel it, the administrator can allow them to do so under a non-punitive order.
