Administrative Driver's License Suspension, Terms of Filing Administrative Hearing; Length of license suspension in a Missouri DUI / DWI / BAC or other drunk driving case

1. The license suspension or revocation shall become effective fifteen days after the subject person has received the notice of suspension or revocation as provided in section 302.520, or is deemed to have received the notice of suspension or revocation by mail as provided in section 302.515. If a request for a hearing is received by or postmarked to the department within that fifteen-day period, the effective date of the suspension or revocation shall be stayed until a final order is issued following the hearing; provided, that any delay in the hearing which is caused or requested by the subject person or counsel representing that person without good cause shown shall not result in a stay of the suspension or revocation during the period of delay.

2. The period of license suspension or revocation under this section shall be as follows:

(1) If the person's driving record shows no prior alcohol-related enforcement contacts during the immediately preceding five years, the period of suspension shall be thirty days after the effective date of suspension, followed by a sixty-day period of restricted driving privilege as defined in section 302.010 and issued by the director of revenue. The restricted driving privilege shall not be issued until he or she has filed proof of financial responsibility with the department of revenue, in accordance with chapter 303, RSMo, and is otherwise eligible. In no case shall restricted driving privileges be issued pursuant to this section or section 302.535 until the person has completed the first thirty days of a suspension under this section;

(2) The period of revocation shall be one year if the person's driving record shows one or more prior alcohol-related enforcement contacts during the immediately preceding five years.

3. For purposes of this section, "alcohol-related enforcement contacts" shall include any suspension or revocation under sections 302.500 to 302.540, any suspension or revocation entered in this or any other state for a refusal to submit to chemical testing under an implied consent law, and any conviction in this or any other state for a violation which involves driving a vehicle while having an unlawful alcohol concentration.

4. Where a license is suspended or revoked under this section and the person is also convicted on charges arising out of the same occurrence for a violation of section 577.010 or 577.012, RSMo, or for a violation of any county or municipal ordinance prohibiting driving while intoxicated or alcohol-related traffic offense, both the suspension or revocation under this section and any other suspension or revocation arising from such convictions shall be imposed, but the period of suspension or revocation under sections 302.500 to 302.540 shall be credited against any other suspension or revocation arising from such convictions, and the total period of suspension or revocation shall not exceed the longer of the two suspension or revocation periods.

Comments : PENALTIES IN MISSOURI ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS FOR CHEMICAL TEST CASES

Should you not request an administrative hearing challenging the chemical test being in excess of 0.08% BAC within the time allowed, or if you lose you hearing, you will be given a suspension / revocation as follows:

" a 90-day license suspension for any first-time Missouri DUI / DWI / BAC or other drunk driving charge where the is no prior, similar charge in the past five years. During the first 30 days of this type of license suspension you cannot drive for any reason, and this is followed by a 60-day limited restriction period where you can drive for limited purposes: to work, to school, to alcohol treatment, etc.

" a one-year license revocation for case in which there is a prior similar charge in the past five years. You will not be eligible for a hardship privilege if you have a previous DWI or BAC conviction, administrative alcohol suspension or chemical refusal on your driving record within the past five years.

FIVE AND TEN YEAR DENIALS:

Where there are cases within five years that result in two DWI / BAC convictions it will result in a five-year license revocation, and you are not eligible for license reinstatement at all during that time. For any five-year denial, you can only apply for a hardship driving license after two years, only if neither of the convictions were a felony, and only if you are "otherwise eligible" for a hardship license under Missouri law.

Similarly, Any combination of three or more convictions for DWI / BAC within a lifetime will result in a ten-year license revocation. On a ten-year denial, you cannot apply for a hardship license for three years. For any ten-year denial, you cannot apply for a hardship license for three years, and only if you are "otherwise eligible" for a hardship license under Missouri law. Note: no hardship licenses are granted for felonies.

Further, in any Missouri DUI / DWI / BAC case which results in a conviction (where you plead guilty straight up to the court without probation or where you receive an SES probation), you will be assessed points on your driver's license, and will be suspended for "points" separate from any alcohol-related suspension.

PENALTIES IN MISSOURI ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS FOR CHEMICAL TEST REFUSAL CASES

Should you not request a refusal hearing challenging the refusal within the time allowed, or if you lose you hearing, you will be given a one year license suspension in a Missouri DWI / BAC refusal case. Assuming this is the first time you have refused a chemical test, it is possible to receive a hardship driving privilege for employment purposes after the first 90-days of the one year revocation has passed, so long as there was not a refusal in any prior DWI case, i.e.- you "blew" in any prior case you may have had.

Further, in any Missouri DUI / DWI / BAC case which results in a conviction (where you plead guilty straight up to the court without probation or where you receive an SES probation), you will be assessed points on your driver's license, and will be suspended for "points" separate from any alcohol-related suspension.
