Whether or not your son's father no longer has a driver's license at this point in time should not preclude the father froim getting overnight visitation with the child. However, if I was the judge, I would be concerned how the father would be able to pick up and return the child if he does not have a car, albeit many cities have public transportation and there are taxi cabs and friends who can drive.

I would make it very clear that so long as the father's driver's license is suspended, he better not be driving a motor vehicle period.
