    Answered . No. The conviction will be reported to the DMV and if the DWAI conviction along with any other conviction for traffic offenses or infractions causes you to exceed the allotted number of points then you will face a suspension of your driving privileges for excessive points.

    Also, if you have a prior criminal conviction for DUI or DWAI within 5 years of this offense, then you will lose your license for one year. But if neither of these two scenarios apply to you, then you will not lose your license. Either way, there is not another hearing.

    Answered . I would agree with Mr. Orr's response. I would just add that if your license would be suspended due to points, you would be entitled to a hearing.
