Our office has helped numerous people get their licenses reinstated or obtain limited driving privileges. The first step in getting your license back is to determine why your license is suspended or revoked. Having this information handy when you contact us will help us to give you the fastest, most accurate advice and pricing information..

This can be done by contacting the Missouri Department of Revenue--you can contact the MO DOR by calling 573-751-4475. Have your driver's license number ready and be prepared to take down all the information they give you regarding your suspension. There are several reasons you may be suspended. Make sure you get the following information for whichever reason(s) applies to you:

  • a.   Failure to Appear on Prior Tickets--if your license is suspended for failing to take care of old tickets, make sure you get specific information regarding the court that issued the ticket(s), the ticket number(s), and the original charge. With this information, an attorney can help you determine if you will need to post bond through that court. Sometimes, the attorney can just enter on your behalf and have the old warrant recalled. The attorney can then have the old charge amended for you so that you will not have any unnecessary points assessed against you. You will then have to pay the amended fines to the court and obtain a compliance letter in order to have your license reinstated. You will most likely have to pay a reinstatement fee to the DOR.
  • b.   An Alcohol Revocation--there are many requirements for having your license reinstated after an alcohol or drug related revocation. Ask the DOR which requirements you have not yet met. These may include: SATOP, an SR-22 filing, or Ignition Interlock. Testing and a reinstatement fee may also be a requirement.
  • c.   Points Revocation--if your license is suspended or revoked because of an accumulation of points on your driving record, you may still be able to get your license reinstated. Find out from the DOR the date of the conviction, the Court where the conviction occurred, and the charge. If the conviction was fairly recent, a skilled traffic attorney can often have the guilty plea withdrawn and the points taken off your record so that your license can be reinstated.
  • d.   Child Support or Accident Restitution--failure to pay your child support or to pay restitution to the injured party of an accident you were involved in can also result in a suspension or revocation. Find out all the details you can about the nature of the revocation and the steps required to be reinstated. Often, a payment plan can be worked out to help get you reinstated as soon as possible.
  • e.   Health Revocation--sometimes, your license can be revoked because a health care provider believes that it is unsafe for you to drive. If this is the case, the DOR will send you a letter in the mail explaining the revocation and giving you an opportunity to appeal. If this is the case, you must act immediately, as you only have a very limited amount of time to appeal the charge. Contact a traffic attorney as soon as you get notice of the revocation.

Once you have determined the reason for your suspension or revocation, give us a call. If court action is necessary, we can guide you through the process and help you get your driving privileges back as soon as possible.
