At Antol & Hance, PC, we know how important it is for you to protect your driving privileges. Our attorneys do everything in their power to prevent your license from being revoked or suspended, and get you the work permits you need in order to keep your employment.
 
The two ways that you can lose your license after being charged with drunk driving include through administrative proceedings and through a criminal conviction. This is how those two ways work:

Administrative Proceedings

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) operates on a point system. Driving infractions, such as DUIs, carry a set number of points. Too many points will result in the revocation of your driver’s license.

A DUI charge carries 8 points – enough to result in a 90-day license revocation. Refusing to take a breathalyzer test or blood
test will also cause you to lose your license for one year – 24
months if it is your second refusal. 

When you are charged with drunk driving, you will lose your license on the spot. You may be eligible for a work permit, but you must act fast to request an administrative hearing to have your license reinstated. Our defense attorneys can help you get the best possible outcome.

Criminal Conviction

Even if you win your administrative appeal, you can still lose your license if you are convicted of DUI. Once of the main consequences associated with DUI convictions is the suspension or revocation of your license. The length of the revocation depends on a number of items, including prior DUI offenses, blood alcohol level and other varying factors.
