The penalty for drunk driving is a fine or imprisonment for a maximum of six months. The offender's driver's licence is also revoked, normally for 12 months.
A driver whose licence has been revoked for less than 12 months can apply for a new licence about one month before the disqualification period ends. On the other hand, those who have been disqualified for longer than 12 months must pass a new driving test (both theory and practical) before a new licence can be issued.
A driver whose licence is revoked during the probation period must also pass a new driving test.
