When you’re arrested for DWI and go to court, the judge is required to suspend your license at the arraignment, irrespective of the charge.
If the lab or breathalyzer result is in the file and the original report from the officer or you refuse to take a test and the officer has filled out the proper form, the judge is required to suspend your license.
You are entitled to a hardship license when you’ve submitted to a blood-alcohol test and failed.
A hardship license allows you to drive to and from work, school, and from appointments with medical doctors while the case is pending.
If the application is not made or you don’t qualify for the application for a hardship license, you will not have a license while the case is pending.
