Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I had my WA state driver's license suspended. I am able to reinstate. In order to do so, I have to take a a knowledge and drive exam and have an ignition interlock for 4 months. I moved to TX for work and am wondering if there is any way to carry these requirements out in TX?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: I have not. This was my first time beginning to research.
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: None.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I have been eligible to reinstate for a few years now, just haven't but now it may be beneficial for work purposes. Not sure if the timeframe makes any difference.

Yes, you will be able to complete those requirements in Texas when you apply for your license.

Customer
Thank you
Customer
I was reading online that I will be denied my application in Texas because the license is still suspended in Washington.
Customer
Is this not correct?

When you apply for your license, do it in person at the DMV and not online, you can ask that you be offered the driving test and ignition interlock services from Texas as you are now a Texas resident and they will be able to provide you those things to get your license reinstated.    If you just show up and apply for a license in Texas without completing those requirements, then yes it would be denied.

Customer
If I do through these steps in Texas will that lift my suspension in Washington too if I move back there?

KellenC46, Expert

Yes, correct.   Are you currently living in Texas?  Do you plan to move back to Washington soon? If so, it might be easier to get these things done in Washington.

Customer
I am currently living in Texas, but don't plan to move back soon which is why I was wondering if I could do it in Texas. It is good to know there are ways. Thank you for your help. I will be sure to contact the DMV in person instead of online.
