Getting a DUI is traumatic event. Especially for individuals that have no experience with the criminal justice system.

Beating yourself up rarely does anything positive.
The ultimate question is "what do I do now"?
HOW DO I GET MY COLORADO DRIVERS LICENSE BACK?
Everyone's case is different but generally speaking Driver's that have had their license suspended per a DUI will need an Affidavit of Enrollment sent to the DMV. Demonstrating that you are in treatment is typically the first step. Remember that even if you are not convicted of a DUI, the DMV will often require treatment.
