Wisconsin- Steps to reinstate your driverís license after drunk driving arrestDrivers who have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI)¬† in Wisconsin may have had their license suspended if they failed to give their consent to take a chemical test if asked to do so by a Wisconsin law enforcement officer. Their license may also have been suspended if they took the test but had a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.
Drivers who refuse to take the test or who take the test and have a blood alcohol concentration above 0.08% will have their license suspended in a DUI civil proceeding by the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles. Refusing the chemical test will result in a one year license suspension. This suspension is called an administrative license suspension and is separate from a license suspension you might face if you are ultimately convicted of a Wisconsin DUI. But what if you have paid your fines and penalties and your license suspension has expired? Now it may be time to review what you have to do to reinstate your Wisconsin driver¬ís license.
