Many potential clients come to our office after a DUI arrest and they are a nervous wreck. They have many questions and come prepared with misinformation they got off the internet.
One common area of nerves is related to their driver’s license. Many are worried about losing their license. Some must drive for work and would lose their job if they didn’t have the privilege to drive.
Luckily, we find that our clients leave a free consultation feeling a lot better about their situation. Particularly when it comes to their driver’s license.
Worried about losing your license
You never really lose your license after a first time DUI arrest. While your Maryland driver’s license is confiscated, the police issue you a temporary license that is good for 45 days.
Depending on the results, or refusal, of the breathalyzer test, your license could be suspended. However, there are modifications available depending on the results. For example, you may be eligible for a work modification, or you could always have the interlock installed on your vehicle for one year.
Bottom line, most people don’t “lose” their license after a DUI arrest. It’s rarely ever suspended as people opt for a modification or the interlock.
So, when potential clients tell us their biggest fear is losing their license, we can help calm their nerves by offering them ways to keep driving. They leave our office saying, “I feel so much better now that I’ve talked to you.”
