What Leads To License Suspension?

In Colorado, driving under the influence can lead to a driver’s license suspension or revocation. The periods are:

  • First offense: Up to nine months
  • Second offense: Up to one year
  • Third or subsequent offense: Up to two years

Refusal to comply with a blood alcohol content (BAC) test in violation of the state’s implied consent laws can also cost you your license. Implied consent means that if you refuse a breath test during a DUI stop, you could receive an automatic license suspension.

The Path To Reinstating Your License

A license suspension can disrupt every aspect of your life, from commuting to work to caring for loved ones. Our criminal law attorneys can advocate for you through the steps to potentially get your license back. We could also help you receive a hardship license, which allows you to commute to work. However, the best strategy is to avoid suspension altogether. You can work with us to defend your license proactively and keep you behind the wheel.
