Minnesota B-Card Attorneys & Lawyers

Driver’s licensing law empowers the Department of Public Safety to impose restrictions on a person’s license to “assure safe operation” of motor vehicles. Under DPS rules, a person whose driver’s license has been cancelled and denied for a third or subsequent impaired driving violation, and who has successfully completed treatment and rehabilitation, may apply for a restricted driver’s license (a B-Card) provided that the person signs a sworn statement to never again consume any alcohol whatsoever (not even in a religious service, in medication, in any other manner or amount, irrespective of whether the act involves driving).

Any violation of this “no alcohol” restriction of the B-Card results in immediate cancellation of the driver’s license and constitutes a crime.

Under DPS rules, the minimum period of time for establishing rehabilitation for which the person must prove total alcohol abstinence, is:

  • One year for the first rehabilitation;

  • Three years for the second rehabilitation; and

  • Six years for the third or subsequent rehabilitation.

The “no alcohol” restriction of a person’s B-Card remains in effect and on the person’s driving record permanently. However, the “no alcohol” verbiage on the back of the driver’s license card may be removed upon request after ten years if there has been no repeat violation during that time.
