Plaxico Burress

Driver's License


3/25/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Plaxico Burress
finally has an NFL team, but now he might have trouble getting to practice ... his driver's license has been suspended ... after failing to cough up a 6-figure judgment to a car crash victim.

According to official records in Florida ... Plaxico -- who JUST signed a 1-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers this month -- will officially lose his driving privileges Monday.

Here's why ... as TMZ previously reported, a woman named Alise Smith sued Plaxico, claiming he caused a car crash that injured her.  She won, and he was ordered to pay $125,000 in damages.

According to Alise, Plax never paid (he tried appealing) ... so her lawyer, James Dunn, fired off a letter to the FL DMV requesting that his license be suspended -- yeah they can do that -- and the DMV made it happen.

To get it back Plax must pay the judgment OR challenge the DMV's actions.

Either way ... come Monday ... it's carpool time. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
