After a DUI arrest, your license may be suspended by the Kansas DMV as a result of administrative action for TEST FAILURE, or TEST REFUSAL, or as part of your DUI penalties following a court conviction on DUI. The process of restoring your license after a suspension can be complicated and challenging, and there is no guarantee that you will regain your driving privileges. A seasoned Overland Park DUI attorney can help you with every step of having your license restored, to make sure you do everything necessary to get back behind the wheel with a minimum of delay. Your case is unique, and will require individual preparation before you try to get your license returned.
Living without a driver's license is difficult in a community where it is expected that you will be able to drive to work, school and to accomplish daily errands. It is vital to get your license back as soon as possible. If you are caught driving during your driver's license suspension you will incur further penalties and will likely be subjected to a further suspension.
If you fail to maintain SR-22 coverage, the insurance provider will report you to the authorities, resulting in another suspension. Kansas law, now, has increased the amount of reinstatement fees for license suspension reinstatement.
Kansas law now provides for the possibility of restricted driving privileges (with installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle) in lieu of 12 month license suspensions that may result from DUI convictions, or BAC test failure or BAC test refusal cases. Depending upon the type of suspension, you will have to serve either 45 days suspension time, or 90 days of suspension time, prior to being eligible for this restriction. Further, a $100.00 application fee must be paid to KDR at the time of the submission of the application for restrictions to KDR. I offer assistance, and advice, with regard to any application procedure with such restricted driving privileges in Kansas.
