How long will my driving privileges be suspended for not taking the chemical test?

October 27, 2013 in Frequently Asked Questions

If, after your refusal hearing, the Department of Motor Vehicles finds that you refused to submit a chemical test, your driver’s license will be revoked for one year.  If you are a commercial driver, your license will be revoked for 18 months.

These penalties, which are imposed by the Department of Motor Vehicles, are separate from any penalties that can be imposed as the outcome of your criminal case.
