Drivers can face license suspension or revocation for many different reasons. For example, a driver may have a certain number of traffic violations on record, or may have been charged with a DUI (driving under the influence). In any case, these types of proceedings go through the Secretary of State’s office and often times require an administrative or court hearing. Facing license suspension or revocation can be overwhelming, but it does not have to be.

Statutory Summary Suspension

If an officer pulls you over for a moving violation and then determines that your BAC is 0.08% or more, or if you refuse testing, the officer will immediately suspend your license. You will be given a receipt that will allow you to continue driving (after your arrest, time to dry out in jail, bail, and arraignment) for 45 days and allow you time to fight the arrest and suspension. After that, your suspension goes into effect. License Statutory Summary Suspensions for a 1st offense are as follows:

  • Fail chemical testing: 6 months
  • Refusal to submit to chemical testing: 12 months
