Records of implied consent license actions and DWI convictions must be retained permanently on the official driving record.
The “no alcohol” restriction of a person’s B- Card also remains in effect and on the person’s driving record permanently. A temporary law enacted in 2005 allowed B-Card holders who had gone ten years without a repeat violation to request a duplicate driver’s license without the “No Alcohol” verbiage showing under “Restrictions.” However, that law expired July 31, 2006, and as a result, there currently is no procedure by which a B-Card holder can have the “no alcohol” verbiage removed from the B- Card license.
