This can vary, depending on the reason for the suspension. Certain suspensions only require the payment of reinstatement fees after the suspension period is over. Court ordered suspensions may require a clearance from the court. Suspensions as a result of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) conviction, Implied Consent violation or Mandatory Insurance violation require the filing of an SR-22 certificate SR-22 with MVD and payment of reinstatement fees after the period of suspension is over.

MVD must conduct an investigation of your driving record by reviewing department records and other sufficient evidence to determine that all withdrawal actions are complete; that you have not committed any traffic violations during the period of revocation; and that all other statutory requirements are satisfied. After the investigation, you may receive a Permission to Apply notice.

If the revocation is alcohol or drug related, you will need to provide MVD with a current evaluation from a licensed physician, psychologist or certified substance abuse counselor regarding your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. For alcohol and drug related revocations you will be required to file an SR-22 certificate SR-22 with MVD.

If you need to begin the investigation process, you may request an investigation packet by telephone. In order to verify your eligibility, the Customer Service Representative may require your full name, date of birth and driver license number at the time of the call.

The SR22 form is a certification of future proof of financial responsibility. Failure to maintain proof of future financial responsibility for the required length of time may result in a loss of your driving privilege and/or vehicle registration. You may obtain an SR22 from any insurance company that is licensed to conduct business in the state of Arizona.

If you fail to appear in court, or fail to pay a fine for a moving traffic violation, the court may direct MVD to suspend your driving privileges. When you have satisfied the court, you may apply for reinstatement at ServiceArizona.com.

Enter personal information such as name, Arizona Driver License or Identification Number, and date of birth. If you do not know your driver license or identification card number, you will need your name, date of birth, social security number, street address, eye color and zip code.
