Losing your driver’s license after a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) can be a great burden on your life. License suspension makes everything in life more difficult, including basic things like getting to your job and taking care of your family. In some situations, you can get your driver’s license reinstated — but you will need help from an experienced license reinstatement attorney.

How Do I Get My License Reinstated?

In South Dakota, you have up to 10 days from the date of your DUI arrest to contest the suspension of your license. This is an outline of the process for getting your license reinstated:

  • Submit an administrative hearing request with the Department of Transportation
  • Receive a date for your court hearing within 30 days of submitting your request
  • Attend the administrative hearing with your defense lawyer
  • Receive a decision from the judge

Generally, judges will only reinstate a license if you can demonstrate that there was a violation of your civil rights, an error in protocol during your arrest or that losing your license would cause undue hardship for you. If the judge agrees to reinstate your license, you must pay a reinstatement fee of $100. If you miss the 10-day deadline, you forfeit the right to contest your license suspension.

IMPORTANT: Contact Skinner Law Office as soon as possible after a DUI arrest. We can handle the driver’s license side of your case, as well as the DUI charge.
