Early Reinstatement of Driving Privileges

 
Pursuant to RCW 66.44.365, juveniles found to have committed certain alcohol and/or drug offenses may be eligible to petition the court to request reinstatement of driving privileges that were revoked pursuant to RCW 46.20.265. Revocation begins 45 days after Department of Licensing receives the Abstract of Court Record.
  • The Respondent must be eligible for early reinstatement of driving privileges. First offense: 90 days from start of revocation or 90 days after 16th birthday, whichever is longer. Subsequent offenses: 1 year from start of revocation or 17th birthday, whichever is longer.
  • The Respondent shall provide the assigned Probation Counselor or Probation Intake Unit with a signed Motion Requesting Early Reinstatement of Driving Privileges, stating the reason(s) why they are requesting the court reinstate their driving privileges.
  • The Probation Department will present an ex parte Order of Early Reinstatment of Driving Privileges, along with the Respondent's signed Motion Requesting Early Reinstatement of Driving Privileges to the assigned Prosecuting Attorney for review, approval and signature. If approved, both documents will be forwarded to the Judge/Court Commissioner for signature and returned to the assigned Probation/Intake Counselor.
  • If the early reinstatement is granted by the court, the Probation Department will inform the Department of Licensing.

 
You may contact your assigned Probation Counselor (if you are on active supervision) or the Juvenile Court Probation Intake Unit at 360-709-3107 to request a packet that includes the above motion and order.
