Good afternoon,
Thank you for your question. I will try to assist you in answering it today but please feel free to ask as many follow up questions as you like until you are 100% satisfied.
The standard requirement when a persons is convicted of driving under the influence is that the person's license is automatically suspended. The Court will however, on good cause shown, make an exception.
The fact that your brother earns a living by driving, and therefor needs a license in order to remain employed and earn a living will be sufficient to apply for such an exception.
I hope this answered your question.
