Suspension Review in Fairfax, VA
A Fairfax DWI Attorney Can Help Save Your Driving Privileges After a DUI Arrest
In addition to the criminal consequences people may incur after being charged with DUI, people who have been charged with DWI may also lose their driver’s license. This especially holds true for those who refused to submit to breath tests , those who had a breath test result of 0.08% and people below the legal drinking age who had a breath test result of 0.02%. These individuals will automatically have their driving privileges suspended. For the first DUI offense, the suspension last 7 days. For the second DWI offense, the suspension lasts 60 days. This is a great deal of time for any person to go without having their driver’s licenses. Imagine not being able to get to work because your driver’s license was revoked!
People who have been charged with driving under the influence and who have had their driver’s licenses suspended can contest their suspensions in the general district courts where they were arrested. In order to do this, people will need to file a challenge pursuant to Virginia Code § 46.2-391.2. By doing this, people may have their driving privileges reinstated if they are successful in court. If they are not successful, they will not be allowed to drive until their suspensions have expired.
