Saint Paul, MN asked in DUI / DWI for Minnesota

Q: I was arrested for a DUI over a year ago. I gave up my license for a year. What are the reinstatement requirements?

First offense. First ticket ever, actually. I am not sure if I need to bring my court paperwork and paperwork from the program, both inpatient and outpatient I went to. It is impossible to find out what I need to do. I found one site that says completed court requirements, but I am on self probation for two years. I have checked with the court and I did not need to check in with a probation officer. So, does this mean I need to wait another year? I am actually not sure if I need to bring the court order. My lawyer told me one year.

A: You are confusing the criminal court requirements and the license requirements. Contact the department of public safety and they can tell you how to reinstate.

A: DVS controls getting your DL back. There is at a minimum a reinstatement fee of $680.00, proof of insurance and you will need to take the DWI written test. There may be additional requirements. Check with DVS.
