A normal consequence of an administrative license revocation hearing is a person's ability to drive at certain times and for certain reasons will be revoked in its entirety. It is also possible that a jail sentence will be issued at the hearing. These hearings also take place when a person who is court ordered to undertake regular urine tests for the purpose of establishing that the person remains drug and/or alcohol free either refuses to take the test or fails the test. In such instances the case is referred back to the court and a new hearing date is set to enter into court record the changes and new terms that are a result of the failure to comply.
