License Suspension

If you are charged with a DWI, the Department of Public Safety will normally seek an administrative suspension of your driver's license. This proceeding is separate and apart from the criminal case. Refusal or failure of a chemical test may result in an automatic license suspension, even if you are not convicted. Typically, the arresting officer is required to provide a statement for you to sign regarding the consequences of refusal and your license suspension. The officer may take your license and provide you with a temporary permit that is valid for 40 days. After the expiration of the temporary license, your driver's license may be suspended for up to 180 days for a first offense or up to two years for subsequent offenses. If you fail or refuse a blood or breath test, you have 15 days to request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing before your driver's license is suspended. It is imperative that you act now. Jee Law can request your ALR hearing and fight for a favorable outcome. If you have missed this deadline or your license has already been revoked, Jee Law can request an Occupational Driver's License (ODL) on your behalf.
