My License Was Confiscated by the Arresting Officer, What Should I Do?
If your license was taken away due to a DUI/DWI arrest, you must’ve
been issued a “temporary driver’s license,” which enables
you to continue driving for 45 days. Unless you request a hearing with
the Office of Administrative Hearings within 10 days to guarantee an extension,
or 30 days to guarantee a hearing, your license will be suspended after the 45th day.
The fee to request a hearing is $150. You will then be notified of the
date and time of your hearing by mail.
If you do not succeed at your hearing or fail to request one, you will
have your license suspended for:
Refusing a chemical test
- First offense – License suspension for 270 days or Ignition Interlock
Device for one year
- Second offense – License suspension for two years
Failing a chemical test
- First and second offense – 180 days
Keep in mind, administrative penalties are separate from criminal penalties.
If convicted of a first-offense DWI, you are subject to a maximum license
suspension of six months. If convicted of a second-offense, then it is
a 12-month license suspension.
Driving on a suspended license is punishable by a maximum jail sentence
of one year and a fine of up to $1,000.
