When Can a License be Revoked?
Reinstating a Driver’s License
Missouri law has softened a little in recent years on denials. A person can obtain a limited driving privilege (LDP) under most circumstances, although this is not guaranteed, and an LDP is expensive to obtain and maintain. Even if the applicant meets the statutory requirements, the judge hearing the petition has the discretion to deny the petition. If an applicant has a felony conviction there will be no LDP granted.
At the end of the five or ten-year denial period, the individual in question can apply to the court for license reinstatement. Again, it is not guaranteed that the license will be reinstated. The judge can deny the petition for reinstatement even if the statutory requirements are met.
