Restricted License Information
There are many reasons an individual’s license can be suspended or revoked. Most commonly, the Criminal Division works with individuals who have lost their license due to a drug charge of some type, a DUI/DWI conviction and/or a conviction of driving while suspended.
An individual who wishes to obtain a restricted license should first go to the DMV and obtain a compliance summary. The compliance summary gives you an outline of what needs to be done in order to get your license back. Once you have obtained this, you may bring it to the Criminal window, at which time a deputy clerk will review the compliance summary as well as your charges in this Court and determine what can be done to either help you get full restoration of your license or a restricted license. If it is determined that you are eligible for a restricted license in this Court, you will need to fill out the Petition for Restricted License.
Please note that this Criminal Division can only assist you with a restricted license for Criminal charges in this Court and cannot issue restrictions for any other Court in the City of Lynchburg, or the Commonwealth of Virginia. Once the petition is filled out completely, it will be attached to your compliance summary and sent to the appropriate judge for review.
