Based on your post, i am guessing this is what happened from the information provided. If your husband was suspended for three years, then he would of have to of had two prior license suspension for DUI or drugs within the previous 10 years. (A first time suspension only carries 180 days and a second suspension carries 1 year DL suspension and the three year suspension is for third or more revocations). As it was a third, OK DPS deemed him a '"Excessive User' which required the additional time. He must also show that he has been alcohol free for one year or they will refuse the reinstatement also. Unfortunately, double jeopardy applies to criminal cases and the license processes are civil cases so it doesn't apply.
