Does your drivers licence get taken away after a DUI?

I'm curious of this. My boyfriend got a DUI and I want to know if he'll get his drivers license back soon or if that is taken away for an extended period of time. He drops me off at work twice a week so I need to know if I should find another way to get there if he won't be able to drive for awhile.

    If he failed or refused the breath test, he will lose his license for a period of time. If he gets a final conviction, his license will be suspended. The amount of time his license will be suspended depends on his age.

    Yes, your driver's license is taken from you if you are arrested for a DUI. You cannot drive for the first 30 days. You can request a work/hardship permit after that. Also during the first 10 days you can request an Administrative hearing about your driver's license where you can challenge the probable cause for stopping you. If you win you get your driver's license back. Hope this helps you out.

    He has only 10 days to request a DMV Hearing to save his license. He should hire a DUI specialist pronto.
