It depends on if the court required you to or if DMV requires you to. The court can tell you that its not required but the DMV is a separate entity and can make you take ASAP related to their requirements. If neither has ordered you to, then you are free to go.
I was able to get my license reinstated as early as possible as I completed everything the courts required well before I was able to get my license reinstated. I thought it only stayed on my driving record for 7 years but everything I see now says it's 11 years. This case was in Chesapeake, VA... Read more »
A DWI in Virginia stays on your driving record for 11 years. Unfortunately as the law is currently it stays on your criminal record forever. There are efforts in the legislature to reform the current system but as it is now it cannot be removed from a criminal record.

The short answer is yes. When you’re convicted of a DUI in Virginia your privilege to operate any “motor vehicle” is suspended. As a result, you are prohibited from operating any vehicle with an engine including a boat.
You do not have to be convicted but sometimes this is the way that the probation officer will do it as long as you have let them know about the arrest. You are technically not in violation until you are convicted if the arrest is reported to probation as well.

3 DUIs 6 years ago. Judge in Albemarle won't reinstate me. Army/Iraq veteran! I already petitioned and did pretrial with VASAP. Judge said no but that I could reset the docket as she didn't even know I'd be there that day.
