Yes, if a driver is cited for an alcohol-related or drug-related driving offense, then the Colorado Dept. of Revenue motor vehicles division (DMV) will take action against the person’s driver’s license. A revocation of the driver’s license will happen in one of two instances. The first is when a driver refuses to take a chemical test when an police officer requires that a test be taken based on Colorado’s Express Consent law. The second is when a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above .08 grams/100 ml of alcohol for an adult; above .02 grams/100 ml of alcohol for a driver under 21 years of age; .04 grams/100 ml of alcohol for CDL drivers driving a commercial vehicle. The DMV can revoke a driver’s license based on the outcome of driver’s administrative case at DMV as well as the outcome of a driver’s criminal case in the court system. However, a driver can request that a driver’s license revocation hearing take place at the DMV before the driver’s license is revoked. But, the DMV has strict deadlines for requesting the driver’s license revocation hearing. That hearing request deadline is triggered at different times based on whether the driver refused the chemical test, requested a blood test, or requested a breath test. If you have been cited for a DUI or DWAI you must not delay in preparing your defense and ensuring you receive the process that you deserve. Call us today for a free consultation.
