DUI Violations

If you have been arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence), you will receive an Official Driver's License Receipt and Notice of Suspension/Revocation of Driving Privilege. The office will take away your license and you will be able to drive for the next thirty days (if you have a valid license). You will have seven days to request an administrative hearing. The hearing will determine if you were driving while intoxicated, if you registered a 0.08 percent Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) or if you refused the BAC test. It will also determine your eligibility for an interlock restricted license or a restricted permit.

Penalties will vary from a driver's suspension for six months for first offense DWI and/or 180 days for first offense Refuse Test to a permanent revocation for fourth offense Refuse Test within five years. Before reinstating your driving privilege, you must also complete an approved drug and alcohol education or treatment program for each DWI/Refusal offense on the record and pay a reinstatement fee of $150.00 per offense.
