Wisconsin driving privileges may be revoked permanently:
- When a person has four or more operating while intoxicated (OWI) offenses (whether convicted, revoked, or suspended) and the fourth OWI offense occurs within 15 years of the previous offense.
- When a person has two alcohol-related convictions, suspensions or revocations within a 25-year period
and has two or more qualifying convictions. A qualifying conviction is either:
- A conviction for second-degree reckless homicide, homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle, or homicide by negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
- A conviction for a crime punishable as a felony under the Motor Vehicle Statute or a felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used.
A person whose license is permanently revoked under any of these provisions is not eligible for an Occupational License.
