Troubleshooting Reinstatement Issues
NH DWI attorney team at
Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. believes that our responsibilities do not end at the close of a case in
court. We seek to educate our clients regarding the necessary next steps
to reinstate their driving privileges following a period of license loss.
After a DWI conviction, a driver must complete any required program, which
may involve the successful completion of any "after care" obligations.
There are insurance consequences because those with a DWI conviction must
SR-22 from an insurance company prior to reinstatement. There is also a reinstatement fee.
New Hampshire DWI Attorney Assistance
Following reinstatement in New Hampshire, the state issues a "probationary
license" for a period of five years. This means that a probationary
license holder cannot drive a motor vehicle with breath alcohol concentration
of 0.03% or more. Violation of this restriction may result in an administrative
license suspension, even without being under the influence of alcohol.
Further, the law requires that a probationary license holder submit to a
breath test and calls for additional administrative suspensions for the failure to
do so regardless of impairment. The issue is similar in Maine where a
conditional license issued for a period of one year for a first offense
and for ten years for a second or subsequent offense. In Maine, this prohibits
operation with any amount of alcohol in your blood. Massachusetts does
not impose a conditional or probationary license status upon reinstatement.
