Driver's License Revocation and Reinstatement

Covington Driver's License Revocation Reinstatement Attorney

When your driver's license is suspended or revoked, your independence goes, too. Driving on a suspended license is not an option - it can increase your suspension by an entire year.
 
You don't need to accept defeat yet. You can fight your license revocation, but you need to do it fast. I am criminal defense attorney Ernest Bauer. For a free consultation to learn how I can help, contact me. I keep my cell phone on 24 hours a day for client emergencies.

Your License was Suspended. Now What?

A driver's license may be suspended/revoked for many reasons, including DUI/DWI, reckless driving, ignoring a traffic ticket, using your license for illegal activity, committing a felony with your car and driving on a suspended license.
 
If your license is suspended, you must request a hearing from the Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV/DMV). An administrative licensing hearing is the only way to contest the suspension.
 
If you are arrested for drunk driving and do not request a hearing with the OMV within 15 days of the DUI incident, your license will be automatically suspended. If you request a hearing, your license will remain intact until the DUI/DWI hearing.

At the Administrative Licensing Hearing

At your administrative licensing hearing, I will subpoena and cross examine the arresting police officer which will give me valuable insight about your case and the evidence against you. The administrative law judge will hear evidence and determine whether your driver's license should be revoked or reinstated.
 
For certain offenses, you may be able to reinstate your license by fixing your problem. For example, if you have multiple unpaid traffic tickets, you may be able to pay them and get your license back. For these and other offenses, a lawyer experienced in driver's license revocation and reinstatement is your best tool to fight for your freedom.

DUI/DWI and Hardship Licenses

If you are convicted of first offense DUI, you may be eligible for a restricted hardship license. A restricted license allows you to drive at certain times and on certain roads during your license suspension period. A court may grant this license to people who are unable to get to work or other necessary places without driving and who are willing to install an ignition interlock device on their automobile.
