Administrative License Revocation and DUI
Administrative License Revocation (ALR) is the legal process through which your driver’s license can be suspended or revoked. You may have to submit to an ALR if you are convicted of driving with a blood alcohol content above .08, or if you refuse to submit to a Breathalyzer test after being pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving.
The length of time for which your license is suspended will depend on your history of prior convictions and other factors. The minimum lengths of suspension for each DWI conviction are:
- First DWI conviction: 45 days
- Second DWI conviction: 1 year
- Third DWI conviction: 2 years
Your license suspension or revocation may be longer if your blood alcohol content was above .15 or if other aggravating factors apply to your case. If you have been accused of drunk driving, you may lose your rights to drive for weeks, months, or even years. You need an experienced Rhode Island DWI defense lawyer who can aggressively protect your rights.
