How Long Does a License Suspension Last?

In Ohio, a driver's license can be suspended for many different reasons. Being convicted of operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI) by alcohol or drug is certainly one of them. But there are certainly others such as getting a certain number of points against your license through traffic violations. You can also be subject to an administrative license suspension (ALS) for refusing to take a chemical test of your blood alcohol content (BAC) after being pulled over on suspicion of DUI.

The length of a suspension depends a lot on what exactly the suspension was for. If this was your first OVI offense, you could get your license back within 90 days. If you had previous convictions, however, the period will likely be longer.

Keep in mind, however, that it is possible to appeal a license suspension. It is also possible to seek a temporary hardship license to drive to work or school. As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, Mr. La Rue will advocate for you intelligently and aggressively throughout the process as you seek to defend or regain your driver's license.
