The way in which to reinstate a suspended license vary greatly depending upon the reason that your license was suspended and in which state your driver's license suspension is in.
For example in Florida your license can be suspended for a variety of things. Here your driver's license can be suspended indefinitely for failure to comply with a traffic summons or pay a fine. In order to get a license reinstated for these issues the motorist by contacting the traffic court in the county where the citation was issued, satisfy the ticket and present proof plus pay a reinstatement fee in a FL driver license office.
Or in Texas if you have a license suspension due to driving while intoxicated (DWI) the period will vary depending upon the court order. In Texas to get your license reinstated for a DWI you have to pay a reinstatement fee, obtain proof of insurance (form SR-22) from your insurance company and submit it to the TX DPS for 2 years. And if a Repeat Offender's DWI education program has been required by the convicting court, certificate of completion must be forwarded to DPS prior to the expiration of the suspension to prevent an additional revocation period.
