After a first-time DUI conviction, the defendant’s driver’s license will be revoked by the Court for 30 days to 120 days. There is no hardship license available for the initial 30 day period so that’s another reason to get yourself a good DUI attorney so they can help you avoid the conviction.
After being convicted of a first-time DUI, the offender is eligible to apply for a hardship license after 30 days.
If a person refused to test and contested the refusal by asking for judicial review of the license suspension, he or she is not eligible for a hardship license.
In order for the Court to grant a hardship license, it must have reasonable cause to believe that the revocation would hinder the person’s ability to continue employment, continue attending school, obtain necessary medical care, and attend driver’s classes or substance abuse classes or programs.
