After your first DWI conviction, you will be eligible for a work permit
- if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was below 0.16%.
- after you meet all reinstatement requirements.
- after a 15-day revocation period has passed.
For your first DWI conviction, no work permit will be issued until a 15-day revocation period has passed and you have met all reinstatement requirements. However, you will not be eligible for a work permit if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.16% or above. (An average 180-pound man will reach a BAC of 0.17% by consuming five shots of 80-proof liquor, five 12-ounce cans of beer, or 25 ounces of wine before his body starts to break down the alcohol.)
