How To Get A Restricted License After A Virginia DUI (Part B)

How do I get a restricted license after a Virginia DUI?

To get a restricted license after your Virginia DUI, you must petition the court when you state your plea, or at the time of your conviction. To do so, you will need to draft a motion and present it to the judge. If you plan on asking for a restricted license, it is better to have a Virginia DUI defense attorney draft this motion for you. 

In order to receive your restricted license, you will also have to enroll in an Alcohol Safety Action program, and successfully complete the course
. To receive your license, a judge may make you wait until 30 days after your conviction.

But This Wasn't My First Offense

If it is your second offense of Virginia DUI within the last 10 years, you won't be eligible for a restricted license for a minimum of 4 months. If it is your second conviction within 5 years, you won't be eligible for a restricted license for a minimum of 1 year. If it is your third conviction of Virginia DUI, you won't be eligible for a restricted driver's license, and you may also serve time in jail.

If you've been charged or convicted of a Virginia DUI, and you want to know your chance of receiving a restricted driver's license, you can get the advice of a Virginia DUI defense attorney. If you want to petition a judge to get a restricted driver's license, a Virginia DUI defense attorney can file the petition in court.
