For people living in large states like Texas, license suspension can be incredibly inconvenient, interfering with work, recreation, and even relationships. If you are in this situation, you are probably desperate to know how to get your suspended driver’s license back. At Dashner Law, we specialize in auto accidents and traffic laws, so we understand what it takes to get your license back under various circumstances.
The Reason for the License Suspension Matters
Sometimes, you can take steps to get your suspended driver’s license reinstated; other times, the length of your suspension is beyond your control. The following four circumstances are ones that commonly result in license loss:
- Driving under the influence
- Committing too many traffic violations
- Being pronounced medically unfit to drive
- Failing to carry adequate insurance at the time of an accident that caused injury, death, or over $1,000 property damage
For traffic violations and DUI charges, you will need to wait a set amount of time and meet other requirements before your license will be reinstated. If you were pronounced medically unable to operate a vehicle, you will need to pass a driver’s test and get approval from the Texas Medical Advisory Board. If you were uninsured at the time of an accident, you will need to provide documentation of a financial repayment plan and current insurance coverage.
Finding Out Where You Stand
If your license was suspended by the Texas Department of Public Safety, you can visit their website to check the status of your suspension. The same source will also inform you if you owe any fees or need to submit additional documentation to get your suspended driver’s license back.
If it was suspended in association with an accident, you may benefit from speaking with an attorney, especially if you sustained injuries in the accident. At Dashner Law, we are experienced in helping victims understand their options and clear all of the hurdles that follow an accident. For a free consultation, please contact us today at 972-793-8989.
