At the time of arrest, you were given a receipt for your driver’s license. This receipt serves as a temporary permit to drive and is valid for a period of 30 days. You should contact the court and request a trial date and an extension of this driving permit.
If you do not contact the court within 30 days and obtain a court order extending your temporary permit, your driving privilege will be suspended for a period of 90 days.
Contract your insurance company and obtain an SR22 insurance certificate.
To get an interlock restricted license, the court must send in your copy of the DUI ticket with an order of conditions of non-adjudication or a court abstract stating interlock restricted license for 120 days or suspension of 120 days. All documents should be mailed from the court within five business days of going to court. You should call the DPS DUI department prior to going to Mississippi DL station to get the license and to make sure your court documents have been received and entered into the system at DPS.
Take all forms and pay all fees to your local driver’s license service office.
For a 2nd or subsequent offense, different suspension periods and restrictions apply. Check the Mississippi DUI Department website for details.
