Question

Who is ineligible to reverse a suspended drivers license?

Answer

There is a simple answer to the question, "What can I do to reverse a suspended license?," and it solely depends on why you incurred the suspension in the first place. All you have to do is meet the criteria that you had ignored which caused your suspension. Your driving license may have been suspended due to nonpayment of traffic fines or for not meeting child support payments. In these cases, simply pay the dues to be eligible to seek reinstatement of the license.

If your license was suspended as a part of criminal proceedings against you, complete the terms of your sentence. Being charged and convicted with a DUI may have caused your drivers license suspension. If this was the case, then you can petition for reinstatement of the license only after completing a waiting period of three months. You may be eligible to pay for the reinstatement in this case, depending on which U.S. state you petition or live in.

You will need to make a decision in a hurry as soon as you receive intimation of the suspension. There is a statute of limitation in place that indicates that you need to file a petition within seven to 10 days to be eligible for a reversal. If you are a habitual traffic offender or have criminal proceedings against you, you may be ineligible for reversal of your driving license suspension based on the judge’s discretion.

Laws regarding reinstatement of suspended license differ from state to state. It is best to hire a traffic attorney to see if you are eligible for reversal in your state.
