How to Get Your Driver’s License Reinstated after a DWI

Were you convicted of a DWI in New Brighton, Minnesota, and lost your driving privileges?

There are many types of sentences for a DWI in Minnesota, which could result in significant fines or a jail sentence. You need to take your DWI seriously, since your driver’s license is already suspended or revoked. Your license can be revoked between 30 days to one year, and it all depends on your prior criminal history and your blood alcohol level at the time of the DWI.

There is a Process You Need to Follow to Get Your License Reinstated

Many people believe if they complete their sentence, that their license automatically is reinstated. This is not true. Here are several steps you need to follow to get your driver’s license reinstated:

  • You need to complete and pass a DWI written driving test. Make sure you study.
  • You need to pay a reinstatement fee of $680
  • Complete the license reinstatement application
  • Pay the $24 reapplication fee

In addition to these four steps, if you had any prior DWI or DUI convictions, you may need to go to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings or alcohol abuse classes to prove that you are actively abstaining from drinking for a minimum of one year after you were convicted of a DWI. People under the age of 21 will have a more difficult time reinstating their driver’s licenses, since there are several additional steps. You can contact our law office to discuss the additional steps if you are under the age of 21, or if you have any questions regarding this article.

Now you know the steps that it is going to take for you to reinstate your driver’s license after a DWI in New Brighton, Minnesota. Contact one of our DWI criminal lawyers to discuss your case today.
