Reinstating after Use It Lose It

When you lose your privilege to drive in Alaska for driving a vehicle after consuming alcohol, 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 proof of birth and identity. See original 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.  Contact a state approved alcohol or drug education and treatment program for an evaluation.  What you will have to do depends on your evaluation. The state approved program will tell you what you need to do to obtain a compliance or completion letter. A list of state approved alcohol or drug education and treatment programs is available from the Division of Motor Vehicles or the Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

  • First offense - Show proof of compliance from a state approved alcohol or drug education and treatment program.
  • Second or subsequent offense - Show proof that you have completed and paid for a state approved alcohol or drug education and treatment program.

6.  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.
