Your license will be suspended at arraignment if you submitted to a chemical test of your blood and blew .08 or more. If, prior to your suspension pending prosecution, you had a valid driver’s license and you did not have a prior conviction for Driving While Intoxicated or Impaired, or complete the Drinking Driver Program within the proceeding five years, you may be eligible for a conditional license issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles thirty days after your arrest if you did not refuse a breath test. The conditional license will allow you to drive for the purposes of work, education and health for you and your family, and three daylight hours per week. In certain limited circumstances, you can qualify for a hardship license from the court to allow you to commute back and forth from work prior to getting a conditional license 30 days after your arrest.
If you refused to submit to a chemical test you license will be suspended at arraignment and you need to attend a refusal hearing at the Department of Motor Vehicles, which will take place within 15 days.
If you are convicted of Driving While Ability Impaired, Aggravated Driving While Ability Impaired, or Driving While Intoxicated, any suspension or revocation ordered by the court begins immediately. The court may issue a 20-day stay of the suspension to allow you to make arrangements for transportation and to apply for a conditional license if you are eligible. You are not credited with any license suspension time from arraignment to when you are convicted.
