DUI and Driver License Suspension

When you apply for a driver license in the state of Colorado the law requires that you give what is called expressed consent to a breath test or blood test if you are pulled over for DUI.

If the test reveals that your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or higher, it is likely that your driver license will be suspended. If you refuse this test your driver license will automatically be suspended, whether you were under the influence of alcohol or not.

How Long do You Lose Your Driver License for a DUI in Colorado?

The length of time you can expect your driver license to be suspended will depend on certain factors including the number of times you have been charged in Colorado with alcohol-related traffic offenses and whether or not there are injuries resulting from your DUI.

In general, you can expect the following driver license suspension durations:

  • First DUI offense: license revoked for 9 months

  • Second DUI offense: license revoked for one year

If your Colorado driver license is suspended because you refused to submit to alcohol blood and/or breath testing or if you are a minor, your driving suspension may be anywhere from 3 months to 3 years, depending on your BAC and whether or not it is your first time DUI in Colorado.
