Protecting Your Driver's License After DUI

Protecting Your Driver's License After DUI

For those who have been convicted of DUI or who are facing DUI charges, protecting their driver's licenses is a top priority. Few of us can readily accept the loss of driving privileges. Our lives have too many responsibilities and too many people depend on us to be able to live without the ability to drive for months. Jobs, children and errands all need us to be mobile and functional.

If you cannot drive, you may not be able to get to work and you may lose your job. No one should have to face that level of risk and uncertainty without representation that they can trust to help them protect their driver's licenses.

As part of the consequences of a DUI conviction restrictions are often placed on driver's licenses. A driver's license may be suspended out right. Often, however, we are able to help people secure limited driving privileges. These restricted driver's licenses generally fall into one of two categories:

  • Geographically limited - This type of restricted driver's license allows you to drive to specific locations such as work or a court-ordered alcohol DUI program.
  • Nongeographically limited - While this type of restricted driver's license does not limit travel to specific locations, it does require the installation of an ignition interlock device.
