Restoring Driving Privileges

Restoring Driving Privileges

Getting Your Freedom Back in Virginia

Your driver's license can be suspended for many reasons, such as reckless driving, driving under the influence (DUI), not having auto insurance, failure to pay court fines and not paying vehicle accident judgments. The loss of driving privileges can create many hardships in life, including affecting your ability to work, attend school or keep important commitments. If your driver's license was suspended, contact a reliable Virginia reckless driving attorney to help guide you through the license restoration process. An experienced lawyer can review your case and provide the capable legal assistance you will need when seeking the reinstatement of your driving privileges.

The process for restoring a license will vary depending on the case. Usually, a person will need to wait until the end of their suspension period before a reinstatement can be pursued. One of the first steps that should be taken is to request a compliance summary from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The compliance summary will list the requirements for the restoration of your driving privileges, such as

  • Paying court fines and fees
  • Taking a driver's license skills test
  • Completing a driver improvement clinic
  • Completing the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program
  • Paying reinstatement fees

Persons designated habitual offenders will be required to wait a specified period of time before full privileges are restored. Habitual offenders must also petition the court for the restoration of their license. Some people may qualify to continue to drive in a limited capacity. You have a unique case and it must be evaluated in order for the Virginia driver's license lawyer to determine the best way to solve your situation. It will vary, based upon the type of license suspension or revocation you have received. There are usually good options for getting this matter solved, but you need help that knows the system and what to do to get the situation moving forward so you can drive again. Contact the firm at once for information and assistance.
