Hello there --
If you originally lost your license due to one or more OUI convictions, you can get your license back by making an application to the DMV in your state -- and then you will most likely be required to have an interlock device installed for a period of several years (it is a breathalyzer installed in your car and the car will not start if you have been drinking and blow into it). On top of the cost for an attorney, the cost of the interlock device is about $800 and then there is a monthly fee to lease the equipment from the company. As far as your felony record is concerned, if the felonies are the OUI convictions, then you cannot get them removed or expunged from your record because they are considered traffic violations and any such OUI felony traffic violations cannot be removed from your court record (this is because the courts look at your previous OUI convictions if you are arrested again so they can determine the number of OUI arrests and convictions that you have had for sentencing purposes).
My suggestion here is to check with the DMV first and see what they have to say about getting your license back. It is most likely that they will refer you back to the court for a reinstatement hearing (you can then get information at the clerk's office at the court where they refer you to in order to apply for the reinstatement hearing). After that, you will get a date for a court hearing and the court will tell you what is needed from you in order to get your license reinstated. THANK YOU
