I was found not guilty. Is my license automatically reinstated?

Do I Get My License Back if I Was Found Not Guilty?

If your DMV hearing resulted in a continuation of your driver license suspension, this suspension remains in effect regardless of the verdict at the trial. You may not receive DUI punishment, but the Department of Motor Vehicles in your state will need to review your case and make a determination on the status of your license suspension.

A not guilty verdict is not an automatic restoration of your driving privileges. You will need to contact the DMV to learn what to do next, and how long the process may take in your state. This is one of the unfortunate effects of the DUI arrest ordeal, and even though you are found not guilty, you still have to comply with DMV rules until the matter is settled once and for all.
