What Should I Bring to Court With me For my DWI Trial Date?

This will vary for each case. Sometimes I need you to bring documents, such as a letter from your employer (for your restricted license). I always tell my clients exactly what they need to bring.

However, in every case, you should bring your driver’s license (if it’s not still suspended like in a 2nd offense DWI). If you’re convicted at court, the clerks will take your VA license from you.

Also, if you want a restricted license asap, you should bring a way to pay your fines and costs. The courts accept check, cash, Visa, and MasterCard. They charge 4% extra for plastic, so bringing cash or a personal check saves you money.
