A: A "Notice of Completion" will be sent to the Department of Motor Vehicles when you successfully complete the program. The DMV will then determine if you are eligible to be reinstated or not. For example, if there was a refusal to take a chemical test, you would have to wait a full year before being eligible to obtain your full license back (assuming this was first time refusal).

A: Although the previous answer is mostly correct, in some jurisdictions you will be given a "green slip" certificate of completion which you can take to your local DMV office and have your license immediately reinstated.
