One of the main penalties of a DUI conviction is having your license suspended or revoked. Following a suspension or revocation, license reinstatement is likely to require a specific process that includes no driving for the set amount of time, enrolling in traffic school, acquiring an SR-22 (a policy rider) from an insurance company and paying the reinstatement fee. Following these steps are necessary for you to get your license and driving privileges back.
Things that Matter:
- Typical suspension length is 30 to 90 days depending on the state.
- Typical revocation length is one year but can be more. An SR-22 is a vehicle liability document required by most states for “high-risk” insurance policies, also known as obtaining proof of Future Financial Responsibility.
- You must pay the application and reinstatement fee to get your license back.
If your state requires you to have an ignition interlock device, you will be required to show proof of installation before your license can be reinstated. Also, knowing when your suspension or revocation period is over is your responsibility, keep track so you are able to drive as soon as possible.
