Will You Lose Your Driver’s License?
Whether your license is suspended or not may rely on a few factors. We will be able to better determine your standing once we know more about your case. In general, these are the guidelines on whether a license will be suspended or not:
- Refusing to take a BAC test is a direct violation of the Implied Consent law. If the driver refuses to receive a test upon the time of violation, a driver’s license suspension will be put in place.
- The length of suspension is often up to 1 year, however the types of charges and number of charges received will ultimately determine the length of suspension.
- If a BAC test was willingly taken at the time of violation, the driver has 7 days to request a hearing at the DMV to defend his/her privilege to drive. This will take place the DMV overseen by a DMV official.
- If the hearing is not requested within 7 days, the driver is susceptible to a driver’s license suspension.
Will You Receive Points on Your License?
DUI charges will result in 12 points being added to a driving record. This is enough to suspend a driver’s license. However, the DMV hearing is an option to prevent the suspension from taking place, as explained above.
For first offenders under the age of 21, 4 points are added to his/her driving record.
