                 Understanding Oregon DUII

DUII In Oregon   

If you’re facing a DUI charge in Oregon, it’s crucial to understand the potential consequences, particularly when it comes to your driving privileges. The information below breaks down Oregon’s Suspension/Revocation/Cancellation Guide for easy reference. 


Breath/Blood/Urine Test Refusal Refusing to take a breath, blood, or urine test can lead to a suspension of your license for 1 year. Eligibility for a hardship permit is possible after a 90-day wait period. If you’ve refused such tests multiple times, the suspension period may increase to 3 years, with a 3-year wait for hardship permit eligibility.

BAC Failure: Failing a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) test can lead to a 90-day suspension of your license. In this case, you could be eligible for a hardship permit after 30 days. If you’ve failed a BAC test before, the suspension period could increase to 1 year, with a 1-year wait for hardship permit eligibility.

DUI Convictions: For a first-time DUI conviction, you may face a court or DMV suspension. If it’s your second offense within 5 years, the suspension period could be 3 years, without eligibility for a hardship permit. A third offense or felony DUI could lead to permanent revocation of driving privileges.

Hardship Permits: Hardship permits allow individuals with suspended licenses under certain conditions to drive for specific purposes, such as employment or medical treatment. The eligibility and wait times for hardship permits can vary based on the offense.

Please note that the above information is a simplified version of Oregon’s Suspension/Revocation/Cancellation Guide. For full details, consult the official guide or contact us for a consultation.
