If you are facing charges serious enough to potentially get your driver's license suspended (DWI/DUI, reckless driving, etc) or have had your license suspended for past offenses, you would be wise to consult an attorney with experience handling these cases and situations.
If your license has been suspended in Virginia, there are several rules and regulations you must follow in order to have it reinstated. Each case is different. The terms of your suspension will be determined by the laws violated to result in the suspension. The following are examples of requirements to be fulfilled before your license can be reinstated:
- Provide proof that court costs and fines have been paid
- Provide the DMV with an SR22 from your insurance company (proof that you've obtained high-risk insurance)
- Attend a driver improvement clinic
- Provide proof of enrollment or completion of the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program
- Pay applicable licensing or reinstatement fees
- Provide the DMV with a medical and/or vision report from a licensed physician or nurse practitioner
- Provide a court order allowing restricted driving privileges.
