What happens to your license in a DUI case depends on many factors. If this is your first time being charged with a DUI (in any state) and you had a valid driver's license at the time of the incident, your license will not be revoked. You are looking at a suspension situation. Contact a criminal defense attorney who handles predominantly DUI matters as soon as possible because there are short time deadlines you may be facing. Do not wait in setting up the appointment. Good Luck

A revocation packet is required when one's license to drive has been revoked and one wishes to reinstate their driving privilege. Ordinarily a first offense DUI results in only a suspension of one's driving privilege and not a revocation. A revocation for a first offender may depend on what their driving record contains. A bad driving record with a first offense DUI may result in a revocation and the state the driver license was issued. Other factors may also affect one's privilege to drive and a person should consult with a criminal attorney to discuss consequences of a DUI conviction as well as any possible defenses to a charge of DUI.
It is highly unlikely to face an AZ license revocation for a first offense DUI. Generally the impact on such an offense would be a 90 day suspension. If a warrant was sought by an officer that could severely impact the length of the suspension however. Given the importance of the situation it is best to immediately contact and consult with an experienced DUI attorney.
