A conviction of driving under the influence could possibly result in a driver’s license suspension. Even a first DUI offense can result in the revocation of your driving privileges for up to six months. During this time, you will be entirely dependent on your family and friends, and on forms of public transportation – which as we all know is not very dependable. A DUI is a very serious offense which can cause a number of negative repercussions in your life. Not only will this conviction create a huge burden on your means of transportation but as well as hurt your social and professional reputation.
It is important that we take a moment to make it very clear that once your License Suspension ends, your license is NOT automatically reinstated. You will need to take certain steps to have your license restored. If you fail to do so, and drive post-suspension, but pre-license restoration, you may face additional penalties.
Once your DUI-related suspension has been completed, you should be eligible to have your license restored. In fact, about 30 days prior to the suspension’s completion, you will be mailed what is called a restoration requirements letter by PennDOT. This letter will explain exactly what steps you must take in order to have your driving privileges restored. Typically, this involves paying any outstanding fees and a one-time driver’s license restoration fee.
Our driver’s license reinstatement attorneys will work with you in gathering all of the information we need to adequately and efficiently prepare your case for a hearing or administrative review, including getting most up-to-date driving record, along with any additional information that is useful in determining what options are best for your case.
