A: Getting your license back depends on a number of factors that I am not aware of at this point in time. The thing to do is confirm with your local DMV/DOL why your license is suspended or, alternatively, what is needed to reinstate your privilege to drive. Many States will require you to install an ignition interlock device for a period of time if you want to drive but will permit the driver to not install the device so long as he/she is not driving. However, many States now require you to have the device installed in your vehicle for a minimum amount of time before you may reinstate your driver’s license. It’s important to know what your State requires and that begins with a call to the DMV/DOL. A complimentary consultation with a local criminal defense attorney is a good idea also. Good luck.
