Oklahoma DWI (Driving While Impaired)
Driving While Impaired (DWI)
If your test results show a BAC of .06 or .07, you can be charged with Driving While Impaired (DWI). If charged in city or municipal court, it will carry a fine and possible jail time. If the charge is filed in State District Court, DWI carries a penalty of a fine up to $500.00 and/or jail time of up to six months in the county jail. DWI only carries a license revocation upon conviction. Most of my DWI clients do not take a conviction and thus, never suffer any license revocations. If you take a DWI conviction, the first conviction will cause a 30 day license suspension. Some people will confuse this with Driving While Intoxicated which is a Texas law that is the same as our Oklahoma DUI law. There is no such charge as Driving While Intoxicated in Oklahoma.
