Have You Been Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You.

Columbia, MO License Reinstatement Lawyer

The Missouri court of law comes down incredibly hard on drivers that have been convicted of a DWI, DUI, or any other type of alcohol or substance-related misdemeanor such as a minor in possession (MIP) conviction. Depending on how many prior offenses you’ve had and the nature of your conviction, you may have had your driver’s license suspended for a year or more. License suspensions are frustrating and can have a serious impact on your ability to provide for yourself and your family.

If you’ve had your license suspended in the state of Missouri, you should know that you do have legal options. If the suspension was issued due to having more than one driving while intoxicated (DWI) or other type of alcohol-related conviction, you may be able to petition to have your license reinstated after a certain period of time. This length of time will depend on many factors including your total suspension time as well as any prior convictions, etc.

After you file a petition in the county where you received the conviction, the court will have to review your case and current conduct and behavior to come to the conclusion that you have a high need to have your license reinstated and are working hard to prove yourself. With the help of an experienced Columbia, MO license reinstatement lawyer, you have a greater chance of successfully showcasing these facts and proving both your need for reinstatement as well as your improved conduct.

Don't wait. We're ready to fight.

Additional Requirements for License Reinstatement

If you are facing either a five or ten-year license suspension as a result of multiple DWI convictions and have completed the time necessary to seek reinstatement, then you may have to fulfill additional requirements. Your reinstatement petition should request that the court issue an order to the Missouri Department of Revenue to issue you your driver’s license. After filing the petition, the court will typically hold a hearing to determine whether the issue will be ordered.

Other requirements such as additional fines, community service, or special classes may also be issued as part of your prerequisites for having your license reinstated. These requirements tend to vary from case to case depending on the nature of your conviction, the presence of any prior convictions, and how well the hearing proceeds.
