The purpose of this publication is to provide detailed information to individuals interested in supporting the enactment and implementation of laws that administratively revoke or suspend the driver's licenses of individuals that fail or refuse to take a chemical test to determine their blood alcohol concentration. Administrative License Revocation (ALR) has been proven to be a most effective deterrent to drinking and driving. Section I describes, from a state perspective, their experience with ALR. The authors discuss topics ranging from drafting legislation through the hearing process. Section II addresses a number of issues that occur in almost all states considering ALR. The appendices in Section III provide additional information that may be useful when preparing testimony, drafting ALR legislation or any of the myriad tasks that need to be accomplished before legislation is enacted. Also included is a listing of brochures, fact sheets, reports, etc., that are available to assist efforts to enact ALR.
