Steps for License Reinstatement
Shortly after your arrest, you should receive a letter from the Department of Public Safety that will include:
1. Amount of reinstatement fee
2. Date you are eligible to reinstate your license
3. Instructions to obtain an alcohol/drug assessment and follow the recommendations.
We can provide general information over the phone as well as schedule your appointments. The process will be quicker if you have the following information ready;
1. Driver License number
2. Date of birth
3. Date, city, type of offense, attorney name
4. Documentation of Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). This can be found on your yellow ticket or arrest report.
5. Method of payment (cash, M/C, Visa, Money Order)
Once we have all the necessary information, you will complete specific assessment tools to assist in determining the most appropriate intervention level. This is a standard series of questions that all clients must take.
This is a personal, confidential appointment. The entire assessment process will last approximately two hours. The State requires each DUI assessor to individually assess the client and then determine what level of services or what recommendations are appropriate. We are required to ask you a series of questions in order to make that determination.
For an arrest prior to November 1, 2008, the assessment fee is $175. For an arrest after November 1, 2008, the assessment fee is $160. The fees are mandatory and regulated by the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
If your license is not revoked but you have a court date, you may still need to do a substance abuse evaluation. The fee will be $25. This fee will assess your treatment needs but will not be sufficient for drivers license reinstatement.
ADSAC (Alcohol Drug Substance Abuse Course) is the same as DUI classes. There are two types of ADSAC/DUI classes, a 10 hour class and a 24 hour class. Which class you should take will be determined by the assessment.
