What Are Other Common Mistakes In The Process of Filing For Your Driving License Restoration?


There are some mistakes that you can make in the process of filing that could cause your case. In the previous part of this article series, we have discussed the importance of consistency. Let us continue the discussion on the common mistakes that you may make in the process of filing.

Failure to mention all prior criminal offenses

Your failure to mention and admit all of your prior criminal offenses involving alcohol or drugs will be taken against you. Much like your records, the court needs to see that you are honest.

In your forms, you should see to it that you will be honest in all of your claims. The dates are also important. 

Failure to obtain a doctor’s letter if you are taking certain medications for sleep, pain, or psychological reasons.

The failure to obtain a doctor’s letter is also a common mistake that could cost you your application. The doctor’s letter will be the one that will tell the judge in the court about the medication that you are taking and why you need to take such medication. 

If your case is about driving under the influence or the use of a controlled substance this is important because you may have an underlying mental condition that requires you to have the medicines that are controlled. You need to explain this properly to the judge.

How can you prevent this mistake?

We recommend that you always have a checklist that would provide all of the important information that you need. In one of our articles, we have provided you with the list of things that are required in your application. All you have to do now is to make sure that you have those things ready and properly filled up and that you will not be led astray by the whole process. 

When Form 258 is not complete

When the substance abuse evaluation or Form 258 is not complete, it might hurt your chances for the reinstitution of your license. Form 258 is one of the more important things in the application form. You must have the form completed properly. 

How can you prevent this mistake?

This mistake can also be addressed in the same ways that we have addressed the previous mistakes. You need to get a lawyer or an assistant to make sure that the form is complete and that you are not missing anything in terms of the information that is necessary to be placed in it.

Once you have all of the forms ready and all of the information relating to the application ready the next step that you need to take is to make sure that you are ready for the hearing itself. In the next part of this article series, we will discuss the hearing process and what you should expect during the time of a pandemic.
