Have You Previously Been Convicted Of DWI?

Have you been convicted of DWI, received a chemical refusal revocation, or an administrative suspension of your license one or more times? If so, your license may be revoked for a longer period of time. Prosecution is going to try to use your prior record against you. Missouri state law now exposes a prior offender to a minimum mandatory 10-day jail sentence.

Driver's License Consequences For Prior DWI Offenders

If you have been convicted of DWI a second time, you are exposed to a five-year loss of license. If you are convicted of DWI a third time, you are exposed to a 10-year loss of license.

One or more prior alcohol enforcement contacts would certainly change your eligibility for a limited driving privilege and requirements for reinstatement. Installing an ignition interlock device would most likely be required.
