Dealing with a Civil Revocation following a DWI Arrest

When you are arrested for a DWI, if you blow a .08 or higher (or refuse to blow), your license is immediately revoked for a period of 30 days. After 10 days, you may petition the Court for a limited driving privilege. This guide walks you through the steps and eligibility requirements for the LDP.

Additional resources provided by the author

As you can tell, this process is a royal pain in the butt. If you have a DWI charge - you should be talking to lawyers anyway (most offer free consultations) and generally, DWI lawyers do most of the heavy lifting on this limited driving privilege for you. Hopefully this guide is helpful for those of you who don't want to hire a lawyer or don't have the resources to do so.
