DUI Driving Record
Records of a DUI arrest and/or conviction remain in criminal history files for the rest of your life. A DUI committed more than seven years after a prior conviction is treated as a first offense, as far as penalties are concerned. Convictions and license revocations remain on your full DMV record for the rest of your life.
Two Separate Proceedings
If you do not request a hearing within the designated time period, you forfeit any right to contest the license suspension and it will automatically take effect. The court proceedings are completely independent of The Nevada DMV's suspension. The former is a criminal proceeding and the latter is simply an administrative proceeding. They are independent of each another, however, if you plead guilty or "no contest" in court to the criminal charge, the DMV hearing becomes moot: Your will have a suspended license.
Below you will find the specfic penalties issued by Nevada DMV surrounding the administrative DMV conviction case.
A driver license revocation is a separate action from any criminal case. Motorists may appeal a revocation through the DMV Office of Administrative Hearings. License reinstatement is not automatic, even if the criminal charges were reduced or dismissed. You must meet reinstatement requirements and physically obtain a license to regain your driving privilege. A revocation which is not reinstated will remain on your record indefinitely and you will not be able to obtain a driver license in any state.
