What is the difference between the ADLRO revoking your license and the Court taking away your license?
Just wondering if one has less penalties as the other, If its the same I was just thinking about pleading guilty

I'll defer to the Hawaii attorneys here.. Either way, don't just plead guilty! Get a free consultation with a local attorney.. this is a criminal conviction after all!
I am not licensed to practice law in Hawiaii, but this same thing takes place in California. You most definitely out to speak to a Hawaii attorney before you just plead guilty because the ADLRO could use that to also revoke your license more easily. Be careful on this. Good luck.
Before pleading guilty you should consult with an attorney about your situation. Many offer free consultations. If you want to try and find one in your area here on AVVO use the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the top of the page. Good luck.

For a first-time offender, if ADLRO revokes the license, it's for a year. You can drive your personal vehicle with an Interlock in your car. Costs about $90 to install and about $90 per month to use. You can get permission to drive a company vehicle with a proper letter from employer (doesn't apply to CDL). If you win ADLRO, you get your license back, but if you lose the criminal case in court, it's the SAME PENALTY (one year for first offender and OK to drive with Interlock). Multiple offenders have longer revocation periods. If you lose your license at ADLRO, the Court will not impose a further revocation.
