MA DUI License Loss

For a first offense DUI, the DUI offender’s license is suspended for 1 year. If the DUI offender enrolls in the First Offender DUI Driver Education Course Program, the DUI offender may be eligible to have their suspension reduced to 45 or 90 days.

If a DUI offender resolves the case, the DUI offender may be eligible to get his or her license back even if the DUI offender refused to take a breathalyzer. If the DUI offender is under the age of 21, the DUI offender’s license suspension will not be reduced regardless of enrollment in the program. If the DUI offender is under 21 and the DUI offender refused a breathalyzer that could affect the DUI offender’s license even further.

For a second offense DUI, the DUI offender’s license is suspended for 2 years. If the DUI offender can show that the DUI first offense was not an actual conviction for DUI, the DUI offender may be able to get the license suspension reduced. However, the DUI offender may be required to attach an interlock device to their car. The amount of license suspension could be affected by the DUI offender’s decision regarding a breathalyzer. http://www.mass.gov/rmv/melanie/index.htm

For a third offense DUI, the DUI offender’s license is suspended for 8 years and there are no hardship licenses available. The DUI offender’s license suspension could be increased if the DUI offender refused a breathalyzer. For a fourth offense DUI, the DUI offender’s license is suspended for 10 years and not eligible for a hardship license until 8 years into the breathalyzer suspension. Once again, the DUI offender’s eligibility may be affected if the DUI offender decided against taking the breathalyzer.

If the DUI offender is convicted with DUI 5th or greater, the DUI offender’s license is suspended for life. There are no hardship licenses available for someone convicted with DUI 5th offense. Even if the DUI offender is not convicted of DUI 5th offense or greater, if the DUI offender refused a breathalyzer, his or her license could still be suspended for life.
