Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

How do you get your license reinstated?

Being convicted of drunk driving in Arizona has all kinds of consequences, many of which can have a significant impact on your life. The mark on your criminal record can affect job and housing prospects, while hefty fines can leave you struggling to make ends meet. If you are sentenced to any jail time, that is a portion of your life simply taken from you.

Another penalty that often arises is the revocation or suspension of driver's licenses. If you have a job or lifestyle that relies heavily on driving, this could have a devastating impact. Moreover, you do not even need to be driving drunk to have your license suspended. It can occur simply as a result of you refusing to take a breath test.

However, while this is extremely inconvenient, it is usually not permanent. According to the Arizona Department of Transport's page on driver services, you can request an investigation packet once you believe you are eligible for a reinstatement of your license. You may need to fulfill certain requirements such as paying off any fines or acquiring a court clearance receipt.

The exact requirements will depend on the severity and nature of your alleged offense. However, an attorney may be able to advise you about the process you need to go through. He or she can also be invaluable if you are simply at the stage of being investigated for drunk driving.

It might seem like a lot to deal with, but it is not something that you have to do alone. With the right guidance and careful observation in case any mistakes are made during the process of your arrest, you may be able to refute the allegations against you and avoid conviction altogether.
