License Consequences

A DUI/DWI carries serious consequences for your driver’s license—even before you plead guilty or are convicted of the DUI. As soon as that citation or arrest occurs, the time starts ticking on certain deadlines relating to your license.

Administrative Hearing

Administrative hearings can be as critical, if not more critical, than the criminal court hearings, because the administrative hearings determine the scope of consequences on your driver’s license. And, certain portions of your administrative hearing can actually impact your criminal case if it goes to trial.

Kansas Hardship License

What is a Hardship License?

Before you even plead guilty or are convicted of a DUI, your driver’s licenses can be suspended simply upon your DUI arrest. With each DUI in your past, your license will be suspended for a longer, and longer period of time.

If your license has been suspended for a year or more, Kansas allows you to apply for a “hardship license” which gives you limited driving privileges, despite your active suspension. For example, a hardship license might allow you to drive to and from work, so that you don’t lose your job. Or, it might allow you to drive to and from your court-ordered alcohol treatment program, so that you don’t get a technical probation violation for missing appointments.

Application for a Hardship License

If you qualify for a hardship license, you must submit an application to the Division of Motor Vehicles

Loss of License

“Drunk driving contains a far greater risk of violent death than the use or sale of illegal drugs, the societal response to drunk drivers has generally emphasized keeping the person functional and in society, while attempting to respond to the dangerous behavior through treatment and counseling. ”
