When Can I Drive Again?
If you’re asking this question, you must have been given an Administrative License Suspension (ALS). That suspension is imposed when a person refuses a blood/breath/urine test or takes a test and the result is ‘over the limit’. The length of the suspension, and the waiting period for obtaining driving privileges, depends on the number of OVI convictions and/or test refusals in the last ten years. On the ALS page of this website, there is a chart which summarizes the suspension lengths and waiting periods. If your license was suspended, your lawyer should challenge the ALS by filing an appeal of the suspension and a separate motion to terminate the suspension.
