Xenia Driving Privileges – Driving Privileges In Xenia Municipal
DUI Driver License Suspensions
If your license is suspended due to a DUI arrest, you may be eligible for limited driving privileges. There are two kinds of license suspensions in a DUI case. If you refuse a breath test, blood test, or urine test, or if you tested over the limit, you are subjected to an Administrative License Suspension by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. If you are found guilty of DUI, you are given a Court Suspension by the judge as part of the sentence for DUI.
Limited Driving Privileges
A court can authorize limited driving privileges. Historically, the privileges have been limited to: occupation, vocation, education, medical, license examination, and court-ordered treatment. A recent change in Ohio DUI law permits courts to grant privileges for other purposes. Whether other purposes are permitted is up to each individual judge.
Certain cases require, as a condition of limited driving privileges, that you have yellow license plates and/or an ignition interlock device. The waiting period to obtain driving privileges varies depending on the number of prior convictions. For details on the length of license suspensions and the length of waiting periods for privileges, see the pages of this blog or contact my office.
