What happens to your license after a DUI?

There are many thoughts that cross your mind after a DUI arrest. You may wonder about how much the court will fine you or if you will spend time in jail. These are valid concerns; however, you should not overlook the possible revocation of your license. In Nebraska, you can lose your driver's license for up to six months after a DUI.

Think back to the last time you were without your driver's license. Like most people, you may have been a teenager having to ask for rides. By the time you reached adulthood, you probably forgot how much of a luxury it is to be able to drive yourself from Point A to Point B.

If you're now wondering how you would get around without your driver's license, you should pay attention to the requirements for having the department of motor vehicles reinstate your license. You may qualify for an ignition interlock permit:

  • Interlock permit: A common way to have your driving privileges reinstated is to agree to the installation of an ignition interlock device. This requires you to take and pass a breathalyzer before starting your vehicle.

By knowing your options for reinstating your driver's license, you can help ensure that you don't have to sacrifice your independence.
