Administrative Review Hearing in Minnesota

An officer may arrest a driver for a DUI/DWI if the driver aged 21 and above and is driving with BAC 0.08% or more or there is a presence of a controlled/hazardous substance; or, the driver is aged below 21 and is driving with BAC 0.02% or more and there is a presence of a controlled/hazardous substance.   If you are arrested for DUI/DWI, the arresting officer will confiscate your Minnesota driver license, complete a notice of license suspension/revocation based on the nature of the offense along with a warrant, if applicable; and send the entire set to the Department of Public Safety – Division of Driver and Vehicle Services. The driver can schedule an administrative hearing after the notice of suspension/revocation. It is advisable consult a DUI/DWI lawyer beforehand. If the hearing goes against the driver, his license will be suspended or revoked based on his previous ten-year driving record. However, a driver may be eligible to drive using a limited license if they meet the strict conditions (i.e. rehabilitation for chemical dependency, homemaker educational, medical or nutritional needs).

The suspension or revocation after the final order of the hearing officer is mailed from the Department of Public Safety – Division of Driver and Vehicle Services. The administrative hearing review is final and the driver may not be granted another administrative review. If the driver is successful in obtaining a favorable verdict, then his/her license will be returned and the suspension/revocation will be cancelled. If the driver, however, does not request a hearing, then the suspension/revocation begins after the arrest and is final.
