Can I get my license back without doing all the required stuff?
Back in April 2002, I got a DWI, driving on a revoked (revoked for refusal to blow on a previous, that I can no longer find a record for, but either in March or April, same year) and running a red light. I believe I was ordered to do SATOP, get the ignition blow thing for a year and SR22 for a year. I have not done any of those things, but did the 5 day jail sentence. I have known people to have done a lot worse than I, and still have their drivers license, without doing all the required stuff. So I would like to know how they got around it, and if it’s at all possible that I can? I haven’t driven in over 16 years and I also, no longer consume alcohol.
https://dor.mo.gov/drivers/reinstatement.php lists the steps to reinstatement. Yes, you have to do SATOP, get the SR22, and an interlock device. I’m not familiar with anyway around that; I suspect that anyone telling you they didn’t have to do all that stuff either had their DWI before the law changed, in a different jurisdiction, or they are lying to you. You can hire an attorney to try to research a loophole, or you can just go to the DMV and ask what steps are required to get your license.
