The Internet is full of information saying that I will automatically lose my license and in order to stop that process I must request a hearing through the DMV. What steps do I need to take to preserve my license?

The real issue will be whether you can establish you were driving to, from or for work. If you can, you should be...
I reside in South Dakota and got a DUI while in Oklahoma (SD license). As I understand, OK requires 180 days revocation for a 1st offense and 18mo reinstatement period with an interlock device in certain instances. Am I required to have my license suspended for 180 days rather than the amount of time required for SD first offenses? Also, does SD recognize the 18 month interlock mandate after the revocation is served?
Very difficult questions to answer. Consider calling a DUI attorney in the state you got your DUI in. Typically you...
