Steps to Obtaining a Restricted Driving Permit During Your Suspension:
(If you need the use of your car to drive to and from work, for medical treatments, or to school, you may qualify for a restricted permit allowing you to do so. You will need to apply to the court that convicted you.)
- If it has not already been taken away from you, you must surrender your license to the Idaho Transportation Department. You can do this in person at a Driver Licensing Office or mail it to: Idaho Transportation Department, 3311 W. State Street, P.O. Box 7129, Boise, ID 83707-1129.
- Pay all reinstatement fees.
- Provide SR-22 proof of insurance. An insurance agent can assist you with this.
- Provide proof that the permit is necessary by filling out a work verification form from the IDT, or obtaining a letter from your doctor if you have medical reasons to drive
