ALR Process For DWI Or BWI

If a Law enforcement officer has reason to believe you are impaired, a set of field sobriety tests will be administered. 

If you fail the field sobriety tests you will be arrested for DWI or BWI.

You will be asked to take a breath or blood test to measure your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. 

If you refuse to take or fail the field sobriety tests, your driver license will be suspended and/or disqualified.

If you consent to a law enforcement officer’s request to a blood test, you will keep your driver license until the BAC results are received by the Department. 

If the results indicate you provided a specimen above the legal limit, your driver license will be suspended and/or disqualified.

A $125 reinstatement fee is required prior to the renewal or issuance of your driver license, in addition to paying any other outstanding fees owed.
