Reinstate 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 action against your license. When you comply with 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 your local DMV office by completing the following steps:
- Pass the written and vision tests
- You may also need a road test
- Pay the reinstatement and license fees
- Proof of SR-22 Insurance
- Present proof of birth and identity
For acceptable documents, please see original license requirements
- If you are under 18, present parental consent
- Your parent or guardian may sign at the DMV
- Have a notarized Parent Consent Form if they won't be with you
- Present compliance or completion letter from a treatment program
- 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.
Please note: Prior to reinstating your license you will need to contact a state approved alcohol or drug education and treatment program for an evaluation. The 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 Department of Health and Social Services
- You may have other problems with your license, so please check with us to learn what else you may need to get your license back.
