Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
This is going to be an issue, and may be up to the judge. The time to get it ironed out will be at court. Make sure you bring up that issue. Some states require that the license be suspended for a specific period of time, and automatically re-reinstated at the end of that date. Others make you get it reinstated. The only thing I can say is have some reasons ready for you not to have your license suspended. School Job family obligations. Judges will listen to you, if you make a good argument, and there are no other problems in your past, or shortly after court. Don't just say you have issues, be able to give examples.

It is not disrespectful to ask a question of the judge or local prosecutor prior to or at during the court proceedings. If it is not brought up, you can bring it up. "Sir or Mame, I am concerned regarding my drivers license. Is the outcome of this case going to affect my ability to drive?" Then go into the issues of school, and such.
It won't matter at this point where you got the alcohol, just that you had it. The judge may want to know names, but I doubt if they would go pick them up for it. Just answer the questions that judge asks you and go from there.
