Reinstate Suspended License in Montana

Montana operates like most other U.S. states, suspending licenses based on a point system and certain alcohol- and drug-related infractions. If your Montana driver's license is suspended, then you can only reinstate it if it has not been permanently revoked. Below are common reasons why your Montana driver's license may be suspended:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
  • Refusing an alcohol sobriety test
  • Having a BAC of .02 percent or higher and being under 21
  • Driving with a CDL and a .04 percent BAC or higher
  • Three of more reckless driving incidents on your record
  • One-year suspension for driving away from a gas pump without paying

When you are ready to have your Montana driver's license restored you will need to pay a license reinstatement fee and complete any programs that the court may have asked you to take. There is the chance of getting a 50 percent reduction on your reinstatement fee if you take an approved driver's rehabilitation course.
