How do I get a Restricted License if I am Convicted of Virginia DWI?

The restricted license procedure varies by court.

Basically, the clerks have a restricted license form that you will fill out. You’ll need your supervisor to sign off on it (or some courts require a supporting letter from your supervisor). Once you pay your fines and costs, you can submit that form. The clerks will type it, usually by the next business day. You will come in person to pick up the restricted license green sheets. You take those to have ASAP sign off on them, then you get your interlock installed. Then you’re driving again.

No matter what the procedure, I’m here to help you get your restricted license asap. My representation doesn’t end when we leave the courtroom.
