Answer

Yes. You can lose your driver’s license in Minnesota (MN) because of a conviction to a DWI or DUI. You can also lose your license because of Minnesota’s Implied Consent Law even before a conviction. A commercial driver’s license (CDL – Includes Class A, Class B, and Class C licenses) will also be affected by this law. 

A “Notice of License Revocation” mailed by Minnesota’s Department of Public Safety to you or handed to you at the jail on the night of the incident will trigger this license loss. The length of loss can be anywhere from 90 days to multiple years depending on many factors. 

You may be able to have driving privileges reinstated by receiving a worker’s permit or other restricted permit. Use of an ignition interlock device may also allow you to drive during a license revocation. You can, and should, challenge this license loss by filing a complaint against the Commissioner of Public Safety. A successful challenge to the license revocation can result in having no license loss at all.

You can find more information about this on our website in our DWI Info Center page.
