License Restoration in South Carolina

Helping You Get Back on the Road in Lexington

If you have lost your right to lawfully drive in South Carolina after having been found to be a habitual offender, a Lexington criminal lawyer from the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC may be able to help you have your license restored so that you can get back behind the wheel. Under South Carolina law, if you are convicted of three serious driving related offenses you may be designated as a habitual offender.

Examples of the types of offenses which can lead to this designation include:

Being determined to be a habitual offender means that your license will probably remain suspended for the rest of your life. It is not a temporary suspension which will automatically be lifted after a few months or years. Once this designation is made by the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, if you are found to be driving again you will be arrested and charged with a serious felony that carries up to five years' imprisonment. To avoid the risk of arrest and incarceration it is important that if you have lost your license because of South Carolina's habitual offender law that you successfully have your driver's license reinstated prior to driving.

What does license restoration involve?

A Lexington criminal defense attorney from our firm can meet with you to review the situation and determine whether you are eligible for a restoration of driving privileges. If you are, we can assist you with the entire process, which includes filing a legal petition with the court. The state of South Carolina will be represented by the solicitor's office. After a formal trial, the court will decide if your license should be reinstated. We not only serve individuals in Lexington, but also those in Columbia and other areas throughout South Carolina.

Contact the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC immediately to get the process started for getting your driving privileges back.
