Getting Your Driver’s License Reinstated

Reinstating your driver’s license if revoked due to Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)

· Pay the $45 reinstatement fee;

· File and maintain proof of liability insurance (SR-22 form) for two years from the starting date of your suspension or revocation (Note: Proof of liability insurance is not required for a first-time suspension, if you are under age 21 and driving with a blood alcohol of .02% or greater.);

· File proof you successfully completed a SATOP or comparable program;

· File proof of installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) if your driving record shows more than one alcohol- or drug-related enforcement contact. Note: IID must be maintained for a minimum period of six months from the reinstatement date. You will be monitored during the last three months of the six-month period. If you have any violations, as determined by the device manufacturer during the monitoring period, your requirement to maintain the device will be extended until you complete a three-consecutive-month period without violation. Violations are defined in 7 CSR 60-2.010 (refer to "violations reset" language);

· If a 90-day Restricted Driving Privilege (RDP) issued, you must obtain certification from the IID installer that no violations occurred during restricted period or an additional 30-day period of restricted driving must be served; and

· Following a revocation (loss of driving privilege for one year), retake the complete driver exam.


What is SR-22 Insurance

The only way to obtain an SR-22 form is from a car insurance company after you purchase a car insurance policy. You cannot obtain an SR-22 any other way. If you have an existing auto policy, you may be able to have the SR-22 added on and filed with the state.
