Lifetime Driver's License Revocation
A third conviction for DUI results in a lifetime driver’s license revocation in Oregon. It does not matter when you received the other two (2) convictions. Even if you think your case looks grim, sometimes you can avoid this revocation by collaterally attacking/challenging one (1) of your prior convictions.
Once you receive a lifetime revocation, you must stop driving. Ten (10) years after you were either:
- Released on post-prison supervision for the DUI that resulted in the license revocation, or
- Sentenced to probation for the DUI that resulted in the license revocation
You are eligible to petition the court to restore your driving privileges unless you have another criminal driving offense during that ten (10) year period. If you have received another criminal driving offense during that ten (10) year period you will not be eligible to restore your driving privileges for ten (10) years from the date of your most recent conviction.
