Can the Court suspend my driving privileges for DUI in Hawaii?
Yes. A suspension of your driving privileges for a criminal conviction for DUI, means that you must surrender to the court, and thus cannot use, your driver's license for the period of the suspension. However, at the end of the period of suspension, the driver's license that you surrendered, can be returned to you, and you can resume using it for the remainder of the period that it was originally issued for. An administrative revocation by the ADLRO means that you will never be able to use that driver's license again. At the end of the period of revocation, you will have to apply for a new license (as if you were applying for a license for the first time).
