Was Your Driver’s License Revoked?
A DWI/DUI charge in Minnesota can come with several penalties, including a revoked driver’s license.

You Have 60 Days To Challenge The Notice Of Revocation
If you are arrested for DWI/DUI, the police officer will revoke your driver’s license by giving you a Notice and Order of Revocation. The Department of Public Safety will receive a copy of the notice, and the revocation will go into effect automatically. You have 60 days from the date of this notice to request an implied consent hearing.
The implied consent hearing is separate from your criminal DWI/DUI case. Our skilled St. Paul drunk driving defense lawyers can handle the criminal component of building a DWI/DUI defense as well as the administrative component of the implied consent hearing.
If you are facing driver’s license revocation in Minnesota, you run the risk of having your driving privileges withheld for a significant time period. For a first-time DWI, if your blood alcohol content (BAC) was between .08 and .15, you will face a 90-day revocation. For a first-time DWI, if your BAC was more than .16, you will face a one-year revocation. For priors or other aggravating factors, the revocation time period can increase significantly.
Our defense attorneys can represent you at the implied consent hearing as well as explore several options for limited driving privileges. You may be eligible for a limited driver’s license, or work permit, to get to work. Or, you may be restored full driving privileges, provided you have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.
Commercial Truck Drivers
A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is vital to a trucker’s livelihood. If you are a truck driver who is facing a revoked driver’s license, your options may be limited, but it is still in your best interests to speak with an attorney. The legal limit for a commercial driver is .04. Our attorneys are skilled in defending CDL holders.
