License Suspension/Revocation

Never go into a Courtroom Alone!

What happens if my driver’s license gets suspended or revoked?

Should your operating privileges be suspended, you will receive a notice from the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles. Should this happen, you may be eligible for an Occupational License, which will allow you to operate a motor vehicle at specific designated times and counties. Total driving time is limited to 12 hours each day and no more than 60 hours per week. If you operate outside those specific hours or for a purpose not permitted on the occupational license, you face arrest for operating after suspension OWS or revocation OAR. In order to apply for your Occupational License, you must complete an application remit them personally to the local Department of Motor Vehicles center. Please remember, you can not apply for an Occupational License until after you receive notice that your regular driver’s license has been suspended.

What about OWI convictions?

A Wisconsin OWI conviction results in a one-year suspension of your commercial driver license regardless of whether you were driving commercially at the time. A second OWI conviction will result in a permanent revocation of your CDL. Occupational licenses are not available to drive commercial vehicles.

As indicated on the instructions within the application for your Occupational License, you will have to pay a $50.00 application fee. Further, you will have to obtain a high-risk insurance policy, commonly this is issued as a certificate known as “SR22”. You can obtain an “SR22” Insurance Certificate by contacting a private insurance carrier. Once you have obtained this insurance, you will need to provide proof to the Department of Motor Vehicles by remitting a copy of your insurance certificate when you apply for your Occupational License.

Beyond Expectations

My husband had never been in any legal trouble before and we didn’t know what to do or what the process was. Attorney Kaehne was very upfront and willing to explain every step of the way. My husband can be very skeptical when it comes to trusting people with his best interest, but Attorney Kaehne always remained professional and helpful. My husband was facing the possibility of years in prison and Attorney Kaehne was able to get the matter dismissed. He will always be our first choice!

The Outcome was Far Better than I Expected

Attorney Kaehne always communicated with me on what was going on and his plans for future court appearances. The outcome of the case was far more better than I expected and am really pleased that Chad did what he did to get this issue resolved.
