Hello. Answers provided on this website are not to be considered legal advice but general information. The Minnesota statute that governs this matter appears to be Minnesota Statute 171.29. I suggest you read that law and then if you have an issue you should contact your public defender or another private attorney for help at this time. Some attorneys, myself included, are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys, myself included, will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. All the best.
No. You would not have a license until your license is reinstated or until you apply for an receive a limited license. In either case, it would require paying the full reinstatement fee, and taking a written test.
