Fredericksburg, VA asked in DUI / DWI for Virginia

Q: I plead guilty to DUI on 04/12/18 & was granted a restricted license for one year on that date.

1 year ends on the completion of 4/11/19. My DMV record shows my punishment thru 4/12/19. That makes my punishment 1 year & 1 day. I had a similar problem with dates getting my restricted license. It took a long time but the DMV saw I was correct. Am I correct now & should I get my regular license back on 4/12/19? Everything else is complied with

A: You will need to pay the pay the reinstatement fee & have had 6 months incident-free on an interlock device before VA DMV will reinstate your full driving privileges. You can go to a DMV office on 4/11 but if they won't agree with you, you will be back on 04/12. Do you really want to spend that much time at a DMV office?
