Getting a license back after a DUI revocation

One of the penalties that drivers in Arizona may face if they are convicted of a drunk driving crime is the loss of their driving privileges. A driver’s license may be suspended or revoked, leaving them without the right to get behind the wheel of a car and drive where they please. However, it is possible for a person to get their license back in some circumstances.

Most of the requirements that a person must satisfy to get a driver’s license back are administrative. They must follow all of the terms of their sentence and must apply to get the license back. The individual may be required to pay a reinstatement fee and show that they are financially responsible to maintain insurance and drive their car.

Pursuing reinstatement of one’s license is a better option than choosing to drive without a license. The penalties for operating a motor vehicle without a legal license can include, but are not limited to, time in jail of up to six months, a large fine and even the seizing the driver’s vehicle.

Losing one’s license to a drunk driving conviction can be a heavy penalty on a person who needs to drive to support themselves and their loved ones. Reinstatement may be an option for those who have fallen into this predicament. Actively defending oneself during a drunk driving trial in an Arizona court is another way to avoid losing one’s license and to protect one’s criminal record from damaging DUI and drunk driving charges.
