Can I have any type of driving privilege while I am suspended/revoked under the Minor in Possession/Other Alcohol Offenses Law?
You may be eligible for a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP). The LDP can be used for work, your alcohol program, medical treatment, school, etc.
It is a form from your insurance company that shows your motor vehicle has liability insurance. (Click here to see an example of the SR-22 form)
The SR-22 is not required for reinstatement for a Minor in Possession/Other Alcohol Offenses action; however, the SR-22 is required if you file for a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP). The SR-22 must be kept in effect until the LDP expires.
You are not required to retest upon reinstatement unless your driver license expired during the suspension or revocation period and has been expired for more than six months.
The law requires you to complete a SATOP for reinstatement if your driving privilege was taken away for:
- Any alcohol- or drug-related traffic offense.
- Any offense involving the possession or use of alcohol or drugs.
- Any offense involving the alteration, modification, or misrepresentation of a driver license.
The Minor in Possession/Other Alcohol Offenses action can only be removed if the person is at least 21 years of age and it is after five years from the reinstatement date. You must submit a written request to our office requesting the Minor in Possession/Other Alcohol Offenses action be removed.
