How do I get my license reinstated after a DWI in Missouri?
If you need to drive to work or as part of your job, to school or to medical care, you may be eligible for a hardship driver's license. An attorney can help you to determine if this is an option in your case. A license suspension or revocation lasts for a fixed period of time. At the end of that period, your license does not automatically come back to you. It's up to you to apply for reinstatement.
• Paying a $45 fee;
• Submitting a form showing you completed a Substance Abuse Traffic Offender Program (SATOP) or comparable program;
• Provide proof of insurance for two years (SR-22 filing);and
• Have an ignition interlock device (IID) installed on any vehicle you operate for at least six months from date of reinstatement.
