What happens to driving privileges after a DUI or OWI?

Drunk driving charges come with serious penalties that can both inconvenience you and impact your finances. One of the most inconvenient of OWI and DUI penalties in Wisconsin is the loss of driving privileges. The ability to drive directly impacts your ability to work, transport your kids and perhaps continue with your education.

If you lost your license as the result of drunk driving, you may be qualified to seek an occupational license. This provision will allow you to drive yourself to certain places, but comes with significant restrictions. This type of license limits when you can drive, where you can go and even what type of vehicle you can drive.

Should you fight a first-time OUI charge?

Any criminal charge is serious, but the consequences of a first-time OUI, also known as DUI or DWI, can impact several areas of your life, including your right to drive. If you are facing drunk driving charges for the first time, it is critical to take the appropriate steps to protect your rights and long-term interests.

You should not underestimate the potentially long-reaching impact of an OUI charge. From the loss of your driving privileges to a permanent mark on your criminal record, it is worthwhile to seek the help of a defense lawyer in order to mitigate the potential penalties you face.
