An OWI can lead to penalties that have a long-term impact on your life. One of the most significant consequences of a drunk driving charge in Wisconsin is the loss of your driver’s license.

Requirements For Getting Your License Back

You will have to meet certain requirements to reinstate your license after an OWI in Wisconsin. To get your license back after a suspension for drunk driving, you will have to present proof of the following:

  • Completion of the terms of the suspension
  • Appropriate insurance
  • Payment of reinstatement fees
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device, if required

In Wisconsin, some OWI offenders will have to install an ignition interlock device as part of the terms of their license suspension. You may have to do this if your license suspension was the result of refusal to submit to a chemical test, you are a repeat OWI offender or you are a first-time offender who had an extremely high blood alcohol content at the time of your arrest.
