Five and Ten Year Denials of Driving Privilege
If you are unlucky enough to get two DWI convictions in a five (5) year period, your driving privilege is lost for five (5) years. On your driving record you will see that from the date of the last conviction, you are denied a drivers license for five (5) years. If you are even unluckier and get three DWI or alcohol related convictions your driving privilege is lost for ten (10) years. On your driving record you will see that from the date of the last conviction, you are denied a drivers license for ten (10) years.
Can you ever get licensed again? As the reinstatement date approaches, consult with an attorney who handles reinstatements.
In the meantime, can I drive? Yes, you might be eligible for limited driving privileges (LDP). A limited driving privilege is just as it says. You may drive under limited circumstances, such as work, doctor appointments and so forth. I once obtained an LDP for a client to go work out at certain times of the day. LDPs can be tricky, so it is best consult an attorney.
At Miller and Terry, we will draft the LDP motion, file it and litigate it in court to obtain driving privileges until your reinstatement date approaches.
After your birthday, the reinstatement eligibility date might be your favorite day of the year! Again, it is not a for sure thing that you can get reinstated. At Miller and Terry, we will draft the reinstatement petition, file it and litigate it in court to reinstate your driving privileges.
