Can I Drive After a DUI Conviction?

Being arrested and subsequently convicted for a DUI is a traumatic experience to endure and you might be unsure what to expect in the aftermath. Of course, one of the most pressing questions you might have is whether or not you can drive. You still have to take care of certain necessities and obligations, such as grocery shopping or traveling to work or school. If this is your first conviction, you might be able to drive after a conviction, though there are some restrictions and requirements.

Conviction and License Reinstatement

Upon your first conviction, it is possible you might serve a term of imprisonment that will last no more than 6 months, in addition to fines and community service. Your vehicle might also be impounded for 10 days, which are not counted during your incarceration. Afterward, if you are interested in reinstating your license and this is your first DUI conviction, you can apply for a hardship license before the expiration of your revocation period. It is also possible that DUI school completion and treatment might be required for you to obtain a hardship license.

If you choose to wait to reinstate your license until your revocation period ends, you will still be required to show proof of enrollment or completion of a DUI school and treatment. Failure to do so within 90 days after reinstatement will result in the cancellation of your driver’s license until the required course is completed. If you take a test or go through treatment and fail, this might also result in the cancellation of your driver’s license.

Whether you are applying for a hardship license or reinstatement, you must also take a required examination and pay an administrative fee as well as a reinstatement fee. You must also have proof of bodily injury liability insurance in the amount of $100,000 per person, $300,000 per occurrence, and $50,000 for property damage liability on the arrest date or proof of liability coverage and a reinstatement fee of $150 or up to $500 for subsequent violations.

If you are able to obtain a hardship license or reinstate your license, you might also be required to install an ignition interlock device. The device will require you to blow into a breathalyzer to start your car. If the reading is not clean, your car will not start. It will also require you to blow into it at various intervals while driving. All readings are recorded and reviewed.

Should I Hire an Attorney if I’m Arrested for a DUI?

Many people often think that a DUI arrest is a guaranteed conviction, but this is not the case. It is possible for equipment to give false readings and, if you believe you were wrongfully charged, it is crucial to consult a skilled DUI attorney to protect your rights. As mentioned above, a DUI conviction can result in high fines, time spent imprisoned, DUI courses, treatment, community service, and difficulties getting your license reinstated or obtaining a hardship license.
