License Revocation - Twin Cities DWI Defense Lawyer

DWI charges and their effect on your license and driving record

License Revocation: DWI offenses generally trigger license revocation. For a first offense where there is no accident and the BAC (blood alcohol content) test reading was under .20, the license revocation can be as little as 90 days. On a first offense only, if the driver pleads guilty in court to the DWI offense, the drivers license revocation can be shortened to 30 days. For repeat offenses, the license revocation period can be much longer.

Drivers accused of alcohol related driving offenses may be entitled to obtain a limited license, and also have the right to contest the order of revocation of the license as long as they file a petition for judicial determination within 30 days of a notice and order of revocation or disqualification. If that time deadline is missed, the driver is generally not entitled to have a hearing on the revocation of his or her driving privileges.
