How Is A Driver’s License Reinstated?

Reinstating a driver’s license in Colorado is a tedious administrative task filled with red tape. Importantly, though, it is not impossible. You will need a knowledgeable DUI lawyer to advise you of your options and rights during the process. As you seek to reinstate your license, you can expect these general steps:

  1. First, meet all the conditions of your suspension or revocation.
  2. Fill out the Application for Reinstatement online or by mail. Include the $95 fee.
  3. Obtain your new license. This may involve a written and practical test.

This process may seem simple at a glance, but it can come with unexpected challenge. One simple mistake could end up costing you a great deal of time and money. It is wise to hire an attorney the first time around to ensure you reinstate your license as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.

What Are The Possible DMV Restrictions?

The Colorado DMV often places certain restrictions and requirements upon your license once you have had a DUI. Unfortunately, these restrictions are non-negotiable and are influenced by your overall motor vehicle record.

These restrictions include:

  • An Interlock device helps ensure a driver’s sobriety by requiring the driver to blow into it before the car is started. If you still have alcohol in your system from the previous night or you recently had a single beer your interlock device will prevent the car from starting.
  • Level II Education is a state-certified class which meets DMV requirements for DUI offenses. This 12-week class increases attendees’ awareness about the negative effects of substance abuse. DUI classes meet once a week for two hours. Discussions focus on addressing the risks and problems related to the use of drugs and alcohol, how to best mitigate those risks, and the difference between addiction and abuse. Attendees participate in comprehensive discussions about the medical aspects of drugs and alcohol, legal implications of usage, signs of addiction, social impacts of drug and alcohol abuse on family and friends, and other topics.
  • SR-22 insurance is separate from your previously held car insurance. Basically SR-22 insurance is not really “insurance” but rather a certificate or bond stating that your auto insurance company is accepting additional liability and risk that you have brought upon yourself.

Act now before the DMV requires you to jump through these non-negotiable hoops. Our lawyers are prepared to fight for your Colorado Drivers License. Reinstating your driver’s license does not have to be an impossible task.

Should I Even Try To Reinstate My License?

In Colorado you face extremely harsh penalties for Driving Under an Alcohol-Related Restraint. In fact, you face a minimum mandatory 30 days in the county jail. That reason alone should be enough to convince you to get your license back as soon as possible. However, every case is different and your requirements may be quite complicated. The restrictions imposed by the DMV are non-negotiable and are influenced by your overall motor vehicle record.
