Restoring Your Driver's License

While it may seem as is if once your license is revoked all you must do is stop driving, this is simply not the case. There is a certain order of steps you must take if you have had your driver's license taken away completely due to drunk driving or driving under the influence of illegal substances. The following process must be followed exactly in order to pursue license restoration:

Handing over your license to PennDOT:
Before you can start earning credited time towards the total time you must be without your license, you must surrender your most recent license to PennDOT.

Seek out Restoration Requirements letter from PennDOT:
Every license restoration case is completely different and the requirements needed in order to have your license returned will often depend on your initial charges as well as other factors. In order to discover what steps you must take to restore your license, you must request the Restoration Requirements letter, by calling PennDOT's customer care line at (800) 932-4600. They will be able to help you decipher exactly what must be done.

Follow the exact requirements:
Each restoration case will be different, but every one requires a certain fee as well as proof of insurance. Be careful and aware of all the due dates for each requirement.

Always know the status of your eligibility:
Once you have received the restoration requirements letter, it will inform you of all the necessary dates you need to know as well as the date that your privileges will be returned. Do not attempt to drive before this date or before PennDOT has notified you that your privileges have been restored, or you can run the risk of facing extra penalties.

It is wise to obtain a criminal defense lawyer in Pittsburgh that understands this legal process and can help minimize the time it takes for restoration. If you have just been charged with a DUI and are facing license suspension, our firm can also help to defend against that so that you do not have to worry about dealing with restoration down the road.
