Impaired Driving and DMV Suspensions

So you are one of the lucky ones. Through some good lawyering, your attorney convinced the prosecutor to reduce your DUI to Impaired Driving. You have completed 60 days of your 120-day driver’s license suspension. You have heard that by doing a plea bargain down to Impaired Driving, your driver’s license suspension was reduced to 60 days.

Be careful! Now that your 60 days is up, don’t think that it is okay to simply resume driving. Doing so could set off an ugly chain of events including jail, fines, and added driver’s license suspension. Also, the original DUI could be added as a conviction on your criminal record. With a little knowledge, you can avoid this ugly chain of events. Simply follow these steps to have your driving privilege properly reinstated.

It may be necessary for you to follow the steps 1-4 above, in order to get your license reinstated in your home state.
