How do I get my liscense back?

Asked about 2 months ago - Crete, IL

I was in a car accident three years ago driving a uninsured vehicle that was not mine. I've been looking for answers and keep getting the run around. Will someone please help me figure out how to get it back?

    Answered . If you were at fault, you need to pay any outstanding judgment or enter into a repayment agreement BEFORE you can get your license reinstated. If you had auto insurance (irrespective of what car was insured), you were covered. Many more facts are needed to fully answer your question.
