In 2005 I was charged with a DUI and refused to submit to a BAC test after running my car into a ditch. I took the guilty charge and suspension and went on to a career in the military. I am now a reservist and was arrested in DEC of 2014 for sleeping in my parked vehicle on the side of the road. I was in possesion of the keys so I was charged with my second DUI. Obviously because I was not driving I refused the BAC test at the time. (What I thought was a good idea at the time). I did not know however that my license would be suspended for 18 months with no chance of getting a hardship. Is there any hope of getting a hardship? I have already challenge the suspension and was denied. I need to get to drill every month and it will become problematic to get to training events in the future.
Unfortunately there's no hardship license issued on a 18 month hard suspension.
