You will not be suspended right away if you take a urine test after being arrested for an OVI in Dayton, Ohio.  To be suspended you will have to refuse or test over the limit.

The police will not know whether you are over the limit right away based on a urine test because it will have to go to a lab for analysis.  It takes about 60-90 days to get a final result back from the lab.

The police in Dayton will take your driver’s license if you have been arrested for OVI.  They should transmit it to the court along with a copy of the administrative license suspension or ALS where its disposition should be determined by the Judge or magistrate at the arraignment.

More common is that the police in Dayton will send your license to the BMV along with a copy of the ALS.  You will also be copied on the ALS.

The best thing to do is consult with an OVI lawyer in Dayton about whether you can drive.  Your lawyer will examine the facts of your case and your copy of the ALS.

If your OVI lawyer in Dayton tells you it is best to get a duplicate of your license, then you will have to make sure you do not misrepresent anything to the BMV.  If you lie to the BMV it is called falsification which is punishable by up to a $1000 fine and up to six months in jail.

It is not unlawful to drive a car without your plastic license after having your license seized by police if you are not suspended.  If the BMV will not give you a duplicate of your license for some reason, then you will have to produce enough information to police if pulled over so that they can identify whether you are valid with the BMV.
