Driver’s License Penalties for DUI in Tulsa, OK
In Oklahoma you can lose your driver’s license for driving under the influence or for refusing a breath or blood test during a DUI traffic stop. How long you lose your license depends on you circumstances. If you just refuse to take the test or if you have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15% or higher, you can lose your license for up to two years. If you have a prior DUI, it can be for up to 8 years.
DPS Hearing – Save Your License
If you are arrested for DUI, you only have 15 days after your arrest to request a DPS hearing. At the DPS hearing we will contest the revocation of your license.

Once the 15 days have passed you cannot contest your license suspension, even if you did not have a lawyer yet. Contact us today so we can get started on trying to save your driver’s license and defending your DUI.
Suspension Modification – Ignition Interlock Device
If your driver’s license is suspended we can usually request and receive a modification of your suspension. This modification will allow you to drive your car with a ignition interlock device. The ignition interlock device is a machine you must blow into in order to operate your car. It ensures you have no alcohol in your system when you are driving.
If you have had a prior revocation of your license for refusal to test or DUI in the last ten years, then the DPS can impose a license revocation for many more years. You can still obtain an ignition interlock device, but this is extremely costly. We can help you in dealing with the Department of Public Safety so that you can get your life back to normal as soon as possible.
In order to prevent suffering any unnecessary punishment, contact the Denton Law Firm so that we can begin your defense and protect your driver’s license. (918) 631-7181.
