Definition - What does Administrative License Revocation Hearing mean?

Drivers who have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and have had their license suspended have a specified time period to request an administrative license revocation hearing (ALR). If an administrative license revocation hearing has been requested within the specified time the Department of Public Safety must prove one or more of the following:

  1. The law enforcement officer had sufficient evidence to believe the driver was intoxicated.
  2. The driver had a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.08% while operating the motorized vehicle.
  3. The blood alcohol concentration test was requested and the driver refused to take the test.

If the court determines there is insufficient evidence to suspend the driver's license their driving privileges will be reinstated. If the court determines there is sufficient evidence to suspend the driver's license they will have their driving rights suspended.
