Sec. § 522.082
Reinstatement Following Disqualification for Life


The department may adopt rules establishing guidelines, including conditions, under which a person disqualified for life under Section 522.081 (Disqualification)(d)(1) may apply to the department for reinstatement of the person’s commercial driver’s license, if authorized under federal law.


A person is not eligible for reinstatement unless the person has been disqualified for at least 10 years and meets the department’s conditions for reinstatement.


If a reinstated driver is subsequently convicted of another disqualifying offense as specified by Section 522.081 (Disqualification)(b), the person is permanently disqualified and is not eligible for reinstatement.
