  • Have been convicted of reckless driving or are a repeat reckless or negligent driver

  • Have committed or permitted an unlawful or fraudulent use of your driver license
  • Have been convicted of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or toxic vapors
  • Have been arrested for refusal to take or successfully complete a chemical test (alcohol/drug content). The penalty for refusal or unsuccessful completion is a 12-month suspension of your driver license, or 2 years for a second or subsequent refusal within an 84-month period.

  • Are under 21 and have been convicted of any illegal drug violation
  • Have an unresolved judgment from another state

Motor Vehicle Records

When you accrue points, they’re put onto your driving record, or motor vehicle record (MVR).Convictions stay on your record for five years.

Reinstating Your License after Suspension

The process of reinstating your license depends on the severity of your violation. If the reason for your suspension was minor and its term has ended, you may be able to complete the reinstatement process online with a credit card.

However, if the court ordered your suspension, it must also clear you before you can apply to have your driver license reinstated. If this is case, you may also require an SR-22, or certification of future proof of liability, from your insurance company. For details on your case, you can visit one of the more than 100 MVD offices.

When you have gathered the appropriate paperwork, you must return to the MVD, as you will be required to pay a series of fees. You are actually reapplying for a driver license, so you may be required to take the appropriate vision, written, and behind-the-wheel tests as well.

Reinstating Your License after Revocation

To reinstate your driver license after it has been revoked, you must first obtain an investigation packet by calling the MVD at (800) 251-5866. After you return the completed packet to the MVD, it will take between seven and 10 days to investigate your case.

You will be notified if your request has been approved, at which time you can return to the MVD to reapply for a driver license. In addition to paying the reinstatement and reapplication fees, you may need to take the vision, written, and behind-the-wheel examinations associated with getting a new license.

If, on the other hand, the MVD does not accept your request for reinstatement, you have the option to request an Administrative Hearing to plead your case or wait one more year before reapplying.

Checking the Status of Your License

Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver’s license, you can order a driving record report.
