Can I still drive when the Officer took my license after a DWI arrest in Louisiana?
Yes, if you did have a valid driver's license at the time of your arrest, the officer should have given you a temporary license which is good for 30 days. And, if you request an administrative hearing within 15 days of your arrest and prevail at that hearing, you will never loose your driver's license as a result of your submittal or refusal to take a breath alcohol test.
