Reinstate after DUI, Breath Test or Refusal

When you lose your privilege to drive in Alaska for drinking and driving, 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 in Alaska.

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 written proof of SR-22 insurance.
  4. Present proof of birth and identity. See original license requirements for acceptable documents.
  5. A notarized Parent Consent form if you are under 18.  (Required when your parent or guardian will not be accompanying you to the DMV)
  6. If you were convicted in court, the steps you take will depend on several things. In most cases you should contact a local Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP).  You will need proof of completion of an approved treatment program from ASAP.
  7. Proof of Ignition Interlock installation may be required. 
  8. 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 any other questions you can call, write or visit a Division of Motor Vehicles office.
