License Recovery

The Missouri Department of Revenue offers Limited Driving Privilege (LDP) licenses to eligible applicants who need to drive to work while their regular licenses are suspended or revoked. You may be eligible for a special restricted driver license.

Steps to Obtaining a Limited Driving Privilege (LDP) License During Your Suspension:

  • Serve mandatory suspension time (required period before interlock may be installed).
  • Complete an Application for Limited Driving Privilege (Form 4595).
  • File an SR22 insurance form.
  • If you have more than one DUI on your record, Make an appointment to have your ignition interlock installed by calling toll-free 800-499-0994. Guardian will verify your eligibility for an interlock with the DMV. Once your interlock installed, Guardian will give you a certificate confirming the installation. The court may require you to have an interlock, even if this it is your first offense.
  • Mail your completed form to the address specified on the form. The MO DOR will review your application within 5 business days and mail the decision to you.
  • Once you have received your limited license, bring your vehicle to your Guardian Interlock service center for an ignition interlock monitoring appointment every 30 days to stay in compliance.

NOTE: You can also apply for a restricted driver’s license through your local court. Contact the court for more information.

Steps to Reinstate Your Driver’s License After Suspension:

Your reinstatement requirements for your Missouri suspended driver’s license will vary depending on your offense. To reinstate your license, you may need to do any or all of the following:

  • Retake and pass the driving skills and knowledge tests.
  • File an SR22 insurance form and maintain coverage for 3 years after your suspension ends.
  • Complete a Substance Abuse Traffic Offenders Program (SATOP), if applicable.
  • If you have more than one DUI on your record, Make an appointment to have your ignition interlock installed by calling toll-free 800-499-0994. Guardian will verify your eligibility for an interlock with the DMV. Once your interlock installed, Guardian will give you a certificate confirming the installation. The court may require you to have an interlock, even if this it is your first offense.
