LICENSE REINSTATEMENT

Traffic Law PhotoLicense suspensions are the most common sanction imposed in relationship to drunk driving. The primary purpose is to deter drunk drivers and to protect the public roadways from repeat offenders. Depending on an individual’s prior record, licenses can be suspended for a determined period of time or revoked indefinitely. License suspensions are automatically reinstated at the end of the suspension period with the payment of a reinstatement fee. An individual receiving a license revocation must apply for a driver’s license at the conclusion of the revocation period. The suspension reinstatement process is a fairly simple procedure so long as all of the terms and conditions of the reinstatement have been met. However, the application process for attempting to obtain a new license after a revocation is a lengthy and difficult process which often requires attending a final hearing on your application. These hearings typically take place at the individual state capital before an Administrative Judge representing the State. There are very specific qualifications to be met prior to being approved to receive a new license after a revocation. The process can be somewhat confusing for those not familiar with the administrative procedures when applying for a new license post-revocation. Our attorneys can aid you in your effort to effectively apply for your driver’s license after the revocation period has concluded.
