A: It may be only $65 or it may be 1000 times that. You need to contact DOS and ask what it takes to have a valid TNDL. Sometimes you need an attorney for certain Sentencing issues, but usually not. Even HMOs and Vehicular Homicides can sometimes get a DL. It is expensive and difficult, but is usually worth it. Sometimes it may require moving to another State.

A: The cost to reinstate your driver's license can vary depending on several factors, such as:

1. The reason for the suspension (e.g., DUI, too many traffic violations, failure to pay fines)

2. Your location (different states and countries have different fees and requirements)

3. The length of the suspension

4. Whether you need to attend any required courses or programs (such as DUI classes or defensive driving courses)

In general, reinstating a suspended driver's license may involve:

1. Paying reinstatement fees to your local DMV or equivalent agency

2. Paying any outstanding fines or tickets related to the suspension

3. Completing any required courses or programs

4. Providing proof of insurance (SR-22 in some cases)

5. Passing a written or driving test, depending on the circumstances

To get an accurate estimate of the cost to reinstate your license, it's best to contact your local DMV or the agency responsible for driver's licenses in your area. They can provide you with specific information based on your individual situation and guide you through the process of getting your driver's license back.
