If your driver’s license has been permanently revoked based on a third or subsequent DUII/DUI/DWI conviction or a felony DUII/DUI/DWI conviction in Oregon you can petition the court to get your license back.
If you were convicted under ORS 813.010 and your license was permanently revoked, there is still hope. After the lapse of ten years from the date that you were sentenced to probation or ten years from the date that you were released from incarceration, under ORS 809.235 you can petition the court to restore your diving privileges.
The court is not required to reinstate your driving privileges, and to get your license back you must have a hearing in front of a judge. In order to restore your right to drive it is critical that you consult with an attorney knowledgeable in the area to formulate an effective strategy to present to the court.
The court will consider a number of factors when determining whether to restore your driving privileges. These are:
- The nature of the offense for which the driving privileges were revoked;
- The degree of violence involved in the offense.
- Other criminal and relevant noncriminal behavior of the petitioner both before and after the conviction that resulted in revocation.
- The recommendation of the person’s parole officer, which shall be based in part on a psychological evaluation ordered by the court to determine whether the person is presently a threat to the safety of the public.
- Any other relevant factors.
