How Do I Get My License Back After A DUI?
In addition to the criminal penalties associated with driving above the legal limit of .08, there are also administrative penalties with the Alabama Department of Public Safety. When you are arrested, your driver’s license is immediately suspended. The length of the suspension depends on whether this is your first offense or if you are a repeat offender:
- First offense: 90-day suspension
- Second offense: One-year suspension
- Third-offense DWI: Three-year suspension
- Fourth and up: Five-year suspension
To get your license back while your court case is pending, you must request a hearing within 10 days of your arrest. I am Braxton Blake Lowe, Attorney at Law, and I can help you do so. I can also investigate your case for problems with the evidence, such as the calibration of the Breathalyzer or other officer error. Whether we take the case to trial or negotiate a plea deal, you can rest assured I am protecting your rights.
A DUI on your record can have lasting effects on your reputation and your career. The penalties become even more severe if you already have a DUI on your record, so getting the advice of an experienced lawyer will put you at ease knowing you did everything you could.
