License Suspensions

Length Of Court License Suspensions For Ohio DUI / OVI Convictions.

Judges are given a range to determine the length of a court suspension in all DUI/OVI cases that result in a conviction. There are mandatory minimum suspensions that must be imposed, and there are maximum suspensions that cannot be exceeded. The minimum and maximum length of a court suspension depends on the number of prior DUI / OVI convictions on your record.
