On March 28th, 2018, Gov. Scott Walker signed SB 135 into law, which permanently revokes the driver's licenses of individuals convicted of 4 or more drunk driving-related offenses.
Under the new law, If a person is convicted of 4 or more drunk-driving related offenses OR after a second OWI in combination with two other serious OWI-related offenses such as injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle or second-degree reckless homicide involving a vehicle, the Department of Transportation (DOT) must permanently revoke that individual's driver's license.
The fourth offense must happen with 15 years of the previous conviction.
Those who lose their licenses and are caught driving will face a $2,500 fine, and up to a year in jail.
