How to Reinstate your Driving Privileges after a
Revocation for Driving While Your License was
Revoked, Suspended, Denied or Canceled

If you drive while your license is revoked, suspended, denied or canceled, your vehicle may be impounded.  To obtain information on how to get your vehicle back, please call 343-4575.

When you lose your privilege to drive in Alaska for driving while your license is revoked, suspended, denied or canceled, the state revokes your license or privilege to drive. Your driving record will show that the state has taken some kind of action against your license. When you take the steps needed to get your license back, you are reinstating your driver's license or privilege to drive.

To get your license back following the loss of your driving privileges, you need to apply for a new license at a Division of Motor Vehicles office and meet the following requirements.

1. Pass the written and vision tests. You may need a road test as well.

2. Pay the reinstatement and license fees.

3. Present proof of birth and identity. See license requirements for acceptable documents.

4.  A notarized Parent Consent form if you are under 18
(Required when your parent or guardian will not be accompanying you to the DMV)

5.  Sometimes, you need to take care of other problems before you are able to get your license back. When there are other problems with your license, a Division of Motor Vehicles employee will tell you what you need to do so that you can get your license back.If you have additional questions you can call, write, e-mail or visit a DMV office.
