DWI Restorations

If you are charged with a DWI, and you refuse to blow into the breathalyzer (or your breath or blood alcohol content is .08+), then your license is revoked for thirty days.

However, you may do so several things to drive within thirty days.

  • You may file for a civil revocation hearing and contest the revocation.
  • You may wait ten days and apply for a paper license. To apply for a paper license, ten days must have past, and the defendant must complete a DWI Substance Abuse Assessment.

If convicted of a DWI, the defendant will suspended for at least a one year period. After a judgment is entered, the judge can grant you a limited driving privilege, allowing you to drive for school, work, or educational purposes. If you are granted a limited driving privilege it will be good for 365 days.

You must complete all of the DWI conviction requirements including payment of fines and fees, all of the alcohol classes recommended, the community service and probation before you can be restored.

We recommend that all clients make sure that they keep a copy of their certificate of completion, of all alcohol classes and a copy of proof of the community service.

If your limited driving privilege expires, then one cannot drive without being restored by DMV. DMV requires that one pay a restoration fee to DMV.
