Oklahoma DUI Information
With any DUI charge, there are actually two separate cases. The first matter is the criminal case against your liberty which carries fines and possible jail time. (See Penalties for more information). In this case, the government must prove each element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt to a judge or jury. If they cannot do so, then you would be found not guilty in the criminal matter.
The second matter is a civil action against your driving privileges. These two matters are completely separate and do not affect each other with only one exception to be explained. The issue at DPS is whether the test was completed according to the Oklahoma Board of Tests rules and regulations or if your refusal was valid under the same rules. If the BOT rules were not adhered to, the revocation would be set aside and your license returned.
It is possible to get a DUI dismissed or be found not guilty of DUI and still lose your license. However, the one exception of where the two separate matters affect each other is where the license revocation is set aside and you got your license back but you are convicted of DUI, DPS will suspend your license based on the DUI conviction. There is only one license suspension per DUI arrest, but the government gets two chances to take your license.
