A: He could very well end up with two convictions, particularly since they are in two different counties. If he only ends up with one conviction , his license will be revoked for a minimum of 12 months. If he receives to convictions, he will have to drive on a restrictive permit for five years with a breath machine, regardless of how long he waits to apply. I have.

In the meantime, in a couple of weeks he will receive a notice from the secretary of state suspending his license for 1-3 years. One year if he took the test in three years if he refused. That will start 46 days after his arrest.
