Length of DMV Revocation – Refusal – Denver DUI Attorney Jacob E. Martinez

Length of DMV Refusal Revocations in Colorado DUI Cases

A person may lose his or her driver’s license due to a refusal in two ways.  First, a DMV hearing officer at a DMV hearing may revoke the individual’s driver’s license.  Secondly, if the individual is alleged to have refused a chemical test, and he or she fails to make a timely DMV hearing request, the individual will also be revoked.  The exact length of revocation an individual faces for a refusal action will depend upon whether the person has previously been revoked for excess BAC, DUI, DWAI, or another refusal. However, below are some common refusal-related scenarios.

A person who is revoked for refusal, with no prior refusal revocations, faces a one year revocation which will run concurrently to any other revocations associated with the case.

A person who is revoked for refusal, with one prior refusal revocations, faces a two year revocation which will run concurrently to any other revocations associated with the case.

A person who is revoked for refusal, with two or more prior refusal revocations, faces a three year revocation which will run concurrently to any other revocations associated with the case.

A person who is revoked for refusal, and who also is convicted of DUI in the same action, faces a one year and nine month revocation.

A person who is revoked for refusal, with two lifetime convictions of DUI or DWAI, faces a two concurrent one year revocations.

A person who is revoked for refusal, with one prior refusal, and one lifetime DUI, faces a two year revocation plus a nine month revocation.

As the above examples demonstrate, refusal-related revocations are treated very seriously in Colorado.  Depending on your exact circumstance, different periods of revocation may apply.  To discuss your specific situation, contact experienced Denver DUI attorney Jacob E. Martinez today.
