Driver’s License Reinstatement

License Reinstatement After a Suspension, Revocation, Denial or Cancellation

Drivers License Reinstatement

While you may be eligible for Driver’s License Reinstatement after a certain period of suspension or revocation time has elapsed, reinstatement is not automatic and you must complete certain requirements in order to restore your driving privileges. Until all requirements are completed, your license will indefinitely remain under restraint and if you are caught driving you will most likely be charged with Driving Under Restraint.

How Do I Get My Driver’s License Reinstated?

The Driver’s License Reinstatement reinstatement process requirements differ depending upon the type of the driver’s license restraint, as follows:

 


License Reinstatement After a Point Suspension…

If your license is suspended due to a Point Suspension, you will become eligible for a driver’s license reinstatement only after the license suspension period (up to one year or more) has elapsed. Since a license suspension is a temporary withdrawal of your driving privileges and does not void your license, a suspended license is reissued upon completion of the requirements established by DMV.

Reinstatement After a Point Suspension Requires Two Steps:
Drivers License ReinstatementStep 1:
Complete the Reinstatement Form, with a $95.00 Reinstatement Fee; and
Drivers License ReinstatementStep 2:
After you complete Step 1, the DMV will mail to you (usually mailed out within 20 days) a Letter of Clearance, advising you that you are ready for the next step to restore your driving privileges. You must then go to the DMV and:
a. Pass a written test (but not a driving road test); and
b. Pay a renewal fee if your license expired during the suspension period; and
c. Provide proof of current liability insurance (SR-22 Liability Insurance will be required in some cases) with your name on the policy.

 

Alert to All Drivers: Reinstatement After Point Suspension

Furthermore, you will be unable to obtain a new license or renew a current license in any other states until Step 1 is completed.


License Reinstatement After an Administrative Suspension…

There are 65+ Ways to Lose Your Driver’s License, including Administrative Suspensions. Each Administrative Suspension requires specific actions in order to reinstate your driving privileges. Some Administrative Suspensions (e.g. an SR-22 Liability Insurance Suspension) include a period of suspension (for up to 1 year or more) that must elapse before you are eligible to reinstate; while other Administrative Suspensions (e.g. an Outstanding Judgment/Warrant Suspension) allows for driver’s license reinstatement immediately upon the satisfaction of the requirements of the suspension.
