    Answered . When you were initially arrested you may have had (most likely) some duration of suspension imposed for refusing or failing the breath test. Depending on how the 2261 was filled out, it may order the BMV to terminate that license suspension. You need to get a copy of it from the clerk.

    When you are arrested initially for a DUI, your license is AUTOMATICALLY SUSPENDED. This suspension can be dismissed by a Judge, IF the DUI / OVI is reduced or dismissed, if there was an improper basis for same.
