A: Before you can begin driving again, you need to make sure you comply with ASAP, any ignition interlock conditions, pay the fines & court costs and of course comply with any DMV conditions.

A: If you enter into a payment agreement with the court (speak to the clerk's office) and take a copy of that agreement with you to the DMV, you will likely get your driving privileges back after paying the reinstatement fee and showing that you have insurance.
