Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.

Good evening. Could you please clarify the following questions, so I can provide you with a more direct answer? Were you operating a commercial vehicle at the time? Did you refuse the breath test? Were you told why your license would remain suspended? What were your results, if you provided a sample?

Paul, thank you for the additional information. You should have been advised of the reason, that your license is still going to be suspended, for the remainder of the year. Based upon the information which you provided, it would appear that the first suspension was an administrative suspension, through the Department of Motor Vehicles and the most recent, was a result of the sentence imposed by the court, as a result of the criminal charge. It is not uncommon for there to be two suspension, in a DUI case. The first is for 90 days, which you have already served but it is unrelated to the court. Of course, tomorrow morning, you can always call the DMV and speak with someone, who can look at your record and see exactly why the action was taken, if it was unrelated to the criminal case. Moreover, review the disposition from the court, that has your sentence on it and see if the suspension time is stated within. Even though it is suspended, you may be eligible for a hardship license, which could allow you to drive to work. You likely will need SR-22 insurance and an interlock device in the car.
