If the police takes away my license, will it then be suspended?

The police will seize your drivers license if you are arrested for DWI and either provide a breath specimen with a result over .08 OR refuse to provide a breath or blood specimen. You will then have 15 days to request an ALR hearing.
If you consent to have your blood drawn then no action will be taken against your license until the results are back from the lab. If your blood alcohol concentration is reported as .08 or greater, a Notice of Suspension will be mailed to the address on your drivers license by DPS. You will then need to make your ALR hearing request.
