How can I get my driver’s license back?

The answer varies depending on your state and the reason why your license was suspended.

Your driver’s license can be suspended for different reasons depending upon your state. Generally, this includes:

  • Several moving violations or speeding tickets
  • Physical or psychological differences that prevent you from driving in a safe manner
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving without motor vehicle insurance
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license (the already existing suspension may be extended if you are caught)
  • Failing to appear in court or failing to pay fees
  • Not paying child support
  • Accumulating too many driving record points

To check your driver’s license status and requirements for reinstating your license according to your state, you can visit the official DMV website, find your state, and read the information located there.

If you lost your license due to a DUI, you could visit this website, alcohol.org, and this website, myduiattorney.org, to learn a bit more about general requirements for how to proceed with getting your license back.
