Am I Going To Lose My License After A DUI?


After an arrest for drunk driving, most people are unsure of the law in this area and how it will impact their daily life, their finances and their family.

Hiring the representation of Caldwell Law Firm, PLLC, in Lexington and Owensboro can give you a good idea of the penalties you may face and your legal options.

One of the biggest concerns I often hear is about license suspension. Under Kentucky law, for a first-offense DUI, a license has to be suspended for at least 30 days and could be suspended as long as 120 days.

The penalties, fines and license suspensions increase with the number of offenses in a certain time period.

What Is A Hardship License?

After the minimum time for a license suspension has passed, a judge may grant what is called hardship driving privileges. Under the law, to be able to do this, the offense cannot include any extenuating circumstances, such as an accident or injury to another person.

As your lawyer, I am easy to talk to about your fears, but I am also honest and straightforward. I will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly. I will not sugarcoat matters. You will have a good idea of what to expect when you walk into the courtroom.
