Drivers' License Restoration
Reinstating a Suspended Driver's License
There are many various circumstances that can result in a suspended driver’s license. Various driving offenses can accumulate points against your license, and if you accumulate 12 points then your license will be suspended. One year after the offense that accumulated points against your license, the points incurred by this offense will be cut in half, and after two years, the points will be removed altogether. Offenses such as failure to dim lights can incur two points against your license, and reckless driving can incur six points.
What is a Restoration Fee?
To regain driving privileges, you will need to pay a restoration fee, also called a reinstatement fee. Generally, the reinstatement fee is $100, unless otherwise specified.
Other Possible Fees
In some cases, due to the nature of the suspension, or the duration of the suspension, you may be required to take driving tests in order to ensure that you still have driving skills. These tests can cost an additional $20. If you are convicted of a DUI charge, then you will have to obtain SR-22 insurance which is extremely costly and you will be required to retain this for at least 36 months.
