The DRA take most driver's by surprise. Quite often, motorist will enter into a plea of guilty without knowing the consequences beyond their immediate court appearance.
While accumulating points is the most common way of being assessed a DRA, a motorist can also be assessed a DRA for
1. being convicted of a DWI.
2. being convicted of drugs.
3. refusing a field sobriety test.
