Requesting Approval from the New York State Driver Improvement Unit
If you live in New York, our license restoration attorneys can help you request approval through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Driver Improvement Unit (DIU) using their online services, and the system will automatically determine if you are eligible.
If you are eligible for approval, the site can issue that approval immediately online. Once approved for restoration you may be required to pay a re-application fee.
The fee is:
- $25 to apply to restore your NYS driving privilege as an out-of-state driver without applying for a NYS driver's license
- $50 to apply for a NYS driver's license and your license was revoked before July 6, 2009
- $100 to apply for a NYS driver's license and your license was revoked on or after July 6, 2009
Understand How to Get Your License Back in New Jersey
If you have a revoked license, it can be difficult to get it back. Not only does a revocation mean that you've lost your license, but it also means you need to retake tests and apply for your license again. The state has some control over whether or not you make an application for or be approved to get a new license as well.
There are a number of reasons why a license might be suspended and eventually revoked, from racking up too many points from traffic violations to failing to appear in court or pay fines. If you are at fault for an accident, abandon your vehicle on a public highway or can't prove that you have insurance, these are all things that could result in your license being suspended or revoked, especially if you've committed one or more of these offenses over time.
What Happens When You Have a Revoked License?
With a revoked license, you can't drive legally. To get your license back, you'll have to go through the New Jersey license reinstatement process. At your court date, you may also receive additional criteria that you must meet before you can have your license reinstated. Normally, the state does send out a letter or documents for you when your revocation period is over, so you can apply to have your license reinstated at that point.
The reinstatement criteria you face may differ from those others have to meet. Your New York license restoration attorney can talk to you about what you need to do to get your license back, so you can get back on the road safely.
Reinstating Your License with the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission
If you received a Notice of Restoration in New Jersey, our attorneys can help you complete the process and get your driver's license back. The general fee to restore your license in New Jersey is $100. This fee can be paid online, in person, or by check or money order to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
You will be subject to a mandatory probation period, during which any new traffic violation will result in another license suspension. The length of the subsequent suspension depends on whether it was your first violation or a subsequent violation.
