Your Guide to License Restoration After a Suspension

There are a variety of ways to lose your license in New York and you could lose your right to drive through a suspension or through a revocation. If your license is revoked, the process of license restoration becomes more complicated because your license to drive is completely cancelled. You will need to apply for a new driver’s license at the end of the revocation period and you will also need to complete your driving test and written test again in some circumstances.

To begin the process of restoring your license after a revocation, you will typically need to request approval from the DMV Driver Improvement Unit. You will need this approval before you are eligible to move forward with restoring your license. You can request approval online in most cases, but some motorists must submit a written request to the Driver Improvement Unit in order to get approval. When you attempt to apply online, the system will determine if you are eligible and will explain the steps you must take to try restoring your license if you are not eligible.

In order to get approved for restoration of your license, you must clear any suspensions that are on your license. If your license is both suspended and revoked, you cannot get your license back. To clear the suspension, you will need to pay any outstanding fines and resolve any outstanding traffic tickets. You’ll also need to pay any applicable outstanding fees and penalties including a suspension termination fee, the costs of a driver responsibility assessment, and a driver license civil penalty. You will also need to pay a reapplication fee to get your license restored if you are eligible.

Once you have been approved for a new license, you need to go through the license application process and complete any required testing. You are not allowed to drive until you actually have your license back; just getting approval for the restoration of your license is not sufficient.
