Restriction of a Licence
If convicted of a DUI, the state will revoke your license for a minimum of one year for a first offense, but you may be eligible for a restricted license. To obtain a restricted license, one must apply to the trial judge or a judge of any court in the person’s county of residence having jurisdiction to try charges for driving under the influence of a restricted driver license. If the judge approves the restricted license application, the judge may also order the person to install and keep an ignition interlock device as a condition of probation.
The amount of time you will lose your license will increase for each subsequent conviction. For a second DUI conviction, you will lose your license for two years. A third DUI conviction will result in your driving privileges being revoked for six years. Losing your license can affect many areas of your life, including your money, time, employment, education, housing, and more.
