    Go to your insurance agent and tell him you need an SR-22.

    I think it's habitual. Obitual is an interesting freudian slip however.

    Go back to school, for starters.

    FlyingRon is correct, the proper term is habitual.

    DWLS, second offense, is 1st degree misdemeanor.
    It can be $1000 and a year in jail.

    Did they impound your vehicle? It looks like they should have. If they didn't you dodged a big one.

    You'd better go get proof of insurance (SR-22) anyhow.
    They may figure this out if they haven't yet.

    Those are the maximums. That statute is pretty plain on that. What is likely? I have no clue. However, any leniency is strained when you are on a second offense for DWLS and you KNEW you were breaking the law by driving.
