Resolving a Wisconsin OWI doesn't stop with the Court's disposition of your case.

OWI
November 1, 2019

As a Wisconsin OWI Attorney, I receive a number of calls about how to get one’s license back after a revocation. The Wisconsin DMV can be difficult to navigate and oftentimes it can be hard to find what you need to get back to driving with a valid license after an OWI in Wisconsin.

With an OWI, the Court will order a period of revocation upon conviction. Any time that your license was suspended for an administrative suspension will be credited towards your revocation. For example, if you had six month administrative suspension, and the Court ordered a one year revocation, those six months will be credited towards the one year revocation.

What is important to remember though, is after the revocation is served you will have to reinstate your driving privilege with the Wisconsin DMV. This also true for out of state license holders. To reinstate, you will be required to pay a reinstatement fee to the WI DMV in order for your operating privilege to return to valid. Additionally, you might also be required to continue SR22 insurance beyond the end of the revocation period. If you have questions about how to get your license reinstated, contact a qualified Wisconsin attorney experienced in OWI matters.
