Reinstate Your Driver’s License in Arizona

A Hardship Driver’s License in the State of Arizona also referred to as a Special Ignition Interlock Restricted Driver’s License is a limited use license issued by the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles. This special restricted license allows you to drive a vehicle while your license is suspended or revoked for a drug or alcohol-related offense. While your driver’s license is suspended or revoked, you may be eligible to receive a Special Ignition Interlock Restricted Driver’s License (SIIRDL). The SIIRDL will have limitations. Such as driving only to and from work, doctors’ appointments, court dates, traffic offender programs, or other state mandatory meetings. While maintaining a restricted driver’s license, the State of Arizona will require you to carry a mandatory SR-22 insurance policy.

We recommend speaking with an attorney about the length of time you will need to carry an SR-22 insurance policy. The typical term is maintaining a policy for 3 years. It could possibly call for the policy to last up to 6 years or more. It is mandatory to maintain the high-risk insurance coverage during the time frame that the court mandates. If the policy lapses or cancels for any reason your license will be suspended, and you typically will have to start the process all over again. The State of Arizona will require you to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle and complete a DUI program. Below we have included information from the State of Arizona to assist you with this process.
