Q: I got a DUI in 2007 ,misdemeanor charge, after 10 years can I just pay my reinstatement fee and get my license back?
A: You certainly didn’t have to wait 10 years to seek reinstatement of your license. It depends on whether you took and failed a breath test or refused or if it was drugs and blood test issues, but in either situation you should’ve had your license back many years ago if you had sought that result. You can contact an attorney to guide you through this, or you can actually contact the Department of Public Safety directly and they will take exactly what needs to be done.
A: No. You will have to have a drug and alcohol assessment done and follow the recommendations of that testing. Depending on the facts of the case, you may have to attend a DUI school so to speak for a number of hours. The DPS of Oklahoma has offices in several larger counties around the State that you can contact to get the specifics.
