Denver Driver’s License Suspension Lawyer

The Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can be a headache simply when attempting to renew a driver’s license. For more complicated issues, such as reinstatement of a suspended license following a DUI, the DMV can be an absolute nightmare. If you are attempting to reinstate your privilege to drive in Colorado, regardless of the reason you were stripped of your license, we strongly encourage you to seek legal representation. Navigating the DMV is time consuming, complicated, and, like a maze, filled with dead ends. To get it done right the first time, look no further than Denver driver’s license suspension lawyer Reid DeChant at DeChant Law.

Colorado’s Points System

Colorado, like many states, uses a points system to keep track of bad drivers—those who speed, cause collisions, and are cited for other types of moving violations. In order to lose your license, you must accrue:

  • Nine points in 12 month period of time
  • 12 points within 24 consecutive months
  • There are other points categories for drivers younger than 21

For example, speeding five to nine miles over the limit is one point; driving on the wrong side of the road or failing to show proof of insurance are both four points; and a DUI or causing a crash that results in serious bodily harm to a vulnerable road user is 12 points. This points system is operated by the Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). It is a completely separate entity from the criminal courts. As such, it has nothing to do with other penalties you are potentially facing from the driving infraction or infractions.

Reinstatement After Meeting All of the Required Conditions

Generally, reinstatement can only be pursued if the driver has met all of the conditions required of them, based on the reason they lost their license in the first place. This may include:

  • Paying all outstanding driving infractions
  • Acquiring SR22 insurance and filing proof with the DMV
  • Taking all required alcohol education courses
  • Other alcohol education and therapy
  • Other driving courses/traffic school
  • Complying with a mandatory ignition interlock system in your vehicle
  • Satisfying all other court ordered restitution
