Driver’s License Restoration for Habitual Offenders in Virginia
For many, to be classified as a habitual offender for traffic offenses is the beginning of long-term problems. It can take months and even years to be reclassified as a non-habitual offender. During that time period, those classified as habitual offenders face a range of challenges related to driving privileges, both in Virginia and in other states.
Classification as a habitual offender in Virginia most often involves multiple DUI or DWI convictions, driving with a suspended license or a combination of these charges. Per the Virginia legislature, individuals can no longer be deemed to be a habitual offender. However, the classification “sticks” for those determined habitual offenders under the old system. If you retain your classification as a habitual offender under the old system, the traffic lawyers of Weiland Upton can help. Our skilled attorneys handle cases throughout Virginia- including Stafford County, New Kent County, Caroline County, Greensville County, Brunswick County, Hanover County, Spotsylvania County, Dinwiddie County, Prince George County, Henrico County, Chesterfield County and the city of Richmond.
Are you a “habitual offender” under Virginia’s driving laws? Are you struggling to be declassified, and facing difficulty getting your driver’s license reinstated, either in Virginia or another state? Contact the lawyers at Weiland Upton or call us at 804.355.8037.
Classification as a habitual offender can lead to numerous problems. For example, further traffic violations carry much more severe penalties for those classified as habitual offenders. And, if a habitual offender moves from Virginia to another state, he or she will likely have trouble getting a driver’s license there. States’ computer technology now enables them to have up-to-date information, and some of our clients have been unable to get their habitual offender status removed for over 15 years.
We have successfully helped hundreds of individuals work to have their Virginia habitual offender status reclassified. The attorneys at Weiland Upton can help you determine what you need to do to get your license back. Most often, residents of other states do not need to return to Virginia to have driving privileges reinstated.
