If you are arrested for
driving under the influence (DUI) or while ability impaired (DWAI), there are two separate legal processes
that affect your driving privileges. There is the criminal process, which
involves criminal charges, and the administrative process, which involves
the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Under Colorado law, the DMV can revoke your driver's license if you
took breath or blood test and had a BAC of 0.08 or higher within 2 hours
of driving, or if you refused to take a breath or blood test.
Once you have failed or refused a test, you have 7 days from when you are
ticketed to request a hearing with the DMV to challenge the revocation.
Since blood tests must be evaluated at a lab, you have 7 days from receiving
the letter from the DMV indicating you failed a blood test.
