Getting A DWI in Arkansas

If you already got a DWI while driving in Arkansas, then you probably were given an Official Driver’s License Receipt and Notice of Suspension/Revocation of Driving Privilege. Assuming you had a valid license at the time of your arrest this receipt and notice will allow you to drive for the next 30 days. Now, be careful, 30 days isn’t exactly a month, so it’s a good idea to use your phone calendar as create a few reminder notifications.

Another thing to keep in mind, driving while intoxicated doesn’t just mean alcohol. It can also mean driving while intoxicated on illegal or prescribed drugs. So, if you’re currently taking any medication (or combination of) that impairs your ability to drive safely, you should plan your trips accordingly. Now, with services like Uber, Lyft and other ride sharing apps, getting around is becoming easier than ever. Make use of technology! And of course there are always taxi cabs, buses and city-operated shuttles.

DWI License Suspension

If it gets determined that you were driving while intoxicated, your license will be:

  • Suspended for six months for the first offense (or 180 days if the test was refused*).
  • Suspended for two years for the second offense.
  • Suspended for five years for the third offense.

*Note: This is the information presented on the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration website as of November 2017. We did notice some typos and the language isn’t too clear. A licensed lawyer that can practice in the state of Arkansas should be able to clear this information up for you.

Arkansas State Bar Website

Compared to other states, the Arkansas State Bar website doesn’t provide an attorney search that show disciplinary records of attorneys. Usually this is a helpful check when searching for a lawyer. However, you can use their site to look for a lawyer in your zip code. One benefit of this search is that the lawyers that you’ll find on their website are most likely in good standing with the State Bar.
