How do I get my driver’s license reinstated after a DUI or DWI conviction in Washington D.C.?
To get your license reinstated after a suspension, you must wait for the suspension period to expire and pay a reinstatement fee. You can't get back a license that was revoked, however. Instead, you must apply for a brand-new license. Then a hearing will be held to determine whether you are eligible for reinstatement.
