6. Can I get my driver license back?
Yes. The tricky part is determining when and how. If you dispute the license suspension and win, DPS will return your license promptly. If your license was suspended either by a judge or because you did not contest the suspension within the time frame, you will get your license back after the expiration of the suspension period if you have paid the reinstatement fee.
If you want your license returned as soon as possible, pay your reinstatement fee as early as possible. It could take up to 30 days for your reinstatement fee to be processed, and you will not get your license back until after the fee is processed. You should also know that DPS will mail everything to the address on your driver license, and, if DPS mails anything to the address on your license, you are presumed to have received it. If you move, you need to have your mail forwarded.
