If I am convicted of an OVI in Columbus, will I lose my license?

If you’re convicted for an OVI in Columbus then court may order the suspension/revocation of your license, but there are many defenses that can be undertaken depending upon the facts of the case to prevent the suspension/ revocation of your license.

Your license may get suspended by two authorities:
– Administrative license suspension by Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV)
– Legal Suspension by Court

The Ohio Bureau of Motor vehicles (BMV) may suspend your license if you either refuse to give a chemical test of your BAC or if the results of chemical tests reveal that you had exceeded the legal alcohol or drug limit.

The legal suspension of license is ordered by court if somebody is found guilty of an OVI charge.
