Driving License Revocation After a DWI/DUI in Albuquerque, NM
If you are arrested for DWI/DUI in New Mexico, your license is automatically up for a revocation, pending a hearing. Your license can also be revoked for a violation of the Implied Consent Act and a DWI/DUI conviction.
In most cases, you can get your license reinstated after a certain period of time, whether it was suspended or revoked. However, a license that has been revoked is more difficult to get back and may require an interlock license.
