Getting your license reinstated as soon as possible is probably your primary goal. This could, however, take you some time especially if the reason your license was revoked was a more serious one. According to Mass.gov, you will need to pay a reinstatement fee as part of the process for getting your license back. The amount you will be required to pay will vary depending on the offense you committed that got your license taken away in the first place. The status of your license will need to be in good standing before you will be approved to apply for reinstatement. Checking the status of your license is something you can see online.
If the period of time that has elapsed since your license was revoked has exceeded two years, you will be required to take the driving test over again to verify that you are up to speed on the rules and laws of the road. Depending on the type of license you are looking to have reinstated, additional testing may be required.
When you are familiar with the process for getting your license reinstated, you may be more effective in your efforts to begin driving again as soon as possible. For more information, if you are facing an OUI charge, visit our web page.
