How long will my license be suspended if I’m convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Missouri?

   First Convictions

A first-time DWI or BAC conviction results in a 30-day suspension. After the 30-day suspension, the driver may receive a 60-day restricted driving privilege. The driver is eligible for full reinstatement after 90 days if all reinstatement requirements are met. A person convicted of operating a commercial motor vehicle while his or her alcohol content is .04% will be assessed 2 points and disqualified from driving a commercial motor vehicle for one year.

Multiple  Convictions

A driver convicted of a second alcohol offense, regardless of the length of time between convictions, is normally revoked for a period of one year. A driver convicted a second time for an alcohol offense within a five-year period may also receive a five-year license denial.

A 10-year license denial is imposed against any individual convicted three or more times for an alcohol offense. After ten years, the privilege to drive can be restored only by court order.
