how to reinstate your driver’s license in wisconsin after an oui

Reinstatement of Your License

 

In order to begin the process to get your driver’s license reinstated after a suspension or revocation, prepare a letter with the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Date of birth
  • Wisconsin driver license number
  • Social Security number
  • Current address
  • Check for $50

Send it to:

  • Wisconsin Department of Transportation
  • Driver Information Section
  • 4802 Sheboygan Ave., Room 301
  • P.O. Box 7983
  • Madison, WI 53707-7983

If your suspension was related to the safety responsibility or damage judgment laws, you will be required to show proof of insurance.

If your driver’s license is still in your possession, you may call (608) 264-7133 to confirm that the DMV has received your $50 and the above information. If they have, you are legally allowed to drive.

If you do not have your driver’s license in your possession, you will need to go in person to your local DMV service center and be prepared to do the following:

  • Show one piece of ID with both a photograph and your signature.
  • Pay the $50 reinstatement fee, plus the $4 fee for a duplicate or, if the license expired while it was suspended or revoked, the $24 fee for a renewal.
  • File the SR22 Proof of Insurance if it is required.
  • Bring a parent or legal guardian to sign as your sponsor if you are under 18.

Proof of insurance (financial responsibility)

Proof of financial responsibility is certifying that you have   liability insurance in the amounts of at least $25,000 and $50,000 for   personal injury or death and $10,000 for property damage.

Proof of insurance is filed by obtaining an SR-22 certificate issued by an insurance company licensed to do business in Wisconsin. In some cases, substitutions, such as a bond from an insurance company or a cash deposit of $60,000 posted with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will be accepted. For operation of commercial vehicles, motor carrier insurance  may be furnished as proof of financial responsibility.

Proof of insurance is necessary:

Insurance filing is not necessary to reinstate a driver license if a revocation is due to:

  • Non-compliance with an assessment interview.
  • Non-compliance with a driver safety plan.
  • Non-compliance with a driver safety plan – new arrest while in a plan.
  • Conviction for a first offense of operating while intoxicated.

During the period of revocation or suspension, a person whose operating privilege was revoked or suspended must file insurance only if they wish to obtain an occupational license.

Insurance must be filed for three years from the reinstatement eligibility date, or for three years from the court entry date of a damage judgment that was effective before September 1, 2000.

How to file proof of insurance

Insurance is filed by providing an SR-22. To obtain an SR-22, contact an insurance company licensed to do business in Wisconsin.

If you are filing insurance in lieu of sponsorship, be sure to tell the insurance agent you want to file insurance “in lieu of sponsorship.” Be sure the agent understands the filing is not required due to a revocation or suspension of your operating privilege.

Most insurance companies that file proof of financial responsibility will mail the certificate directly to WisDOT. Some companies will give the SR-22 to the customer and some companies will electronically file the information to  WisDOT’s computer system. The electronically filed information is usually entered automatically on the customer’s driver record within one or two working days.

Check the status of your insurance filing.

Voluntary surrender when insurance is required

If, at any time during the three-year filing period, a person wishes to stop filing insurance, and discontinue driving in Wisconsin, they can avoid paying the reinstatement fee in the future by surrendering their driver license to the WisDOT while the insurance is still in force.
