  1. There are three things you must do to get your license back after a DUI conviction and serving the suspension.

    1. Complete a 1st offender DUI class. The class will electronically transmit proof of completion to the DMV.

    2. Obtain SR-22 insurance.

    3. Pay a $125 reissue fee.

    There is no requirement that you take a written test.


  2. There is no requirement for a written test after a suspension for DUI. As long as there are no other suspensions affecting your license, your SR 22 and proof of completion are properly filed with the DMV, and you pay the reissue fee, your license should be reinstated.


  3. Just make sure the SR22 is on file and pay the reissuance fee.
