Why did my license get revoked?

How long will my license be revoked?
Can I get a restricted license?
You may be eligible for an Ignition Interlock License (IIL) if all of the following are true:
- The vehicular homicide conviction involved alcohol or drugs.
- Nothing else on your driving record would prevent issuing an IIL.
Can I contest or appeal the revocation?

How can I get my license back?
The date you're eligible to reinstate your driver license depends on the amount of time you're incarcerated.
- You must provide us with any information about being incarcerated for this incident. If you're incarcerated and released before serving 2 years; you, the facility, or your probation officer must send us documents showing the date you were released.
- When you're eligible to reinstate your driver license, you must:
- File proof of financial responsibility (SR-22) for 3 years from the date you're eligible to reinstate your license for that incident.
- Apply for a new license.
- You'll be required to pay a $75 reissue fee in addition to any other licensing fees.
