Many people arrested for driving while impaired (DWI) do not know they may actually face two separate legal proceedings after their arrest. One is the traditional criminal case, in which the defendant will face penalties that include fines and jail time. The other is an administrative hearing with the DMV where it is decided whether or not the individual will be able to keep their driver’s license.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN A DMV HEARING?
There is more than one type of DMV hearing that may take place after a person is arrested for DWI. A DWI restoration hearing is held when a person has had their license revoked following a DWI conviction, or in the aftermath of a license revocation for multiple DWI offenses. A DWI refusal hearing is held after a person’s license has been suspended due to refusing a breath or blood alcohol test. In both instances, the individual can fight to reinstate their driver’s license or be granted limited driving privileges.
