Crime and Punishment

Good evening, ladies and gents. :D I have a few questions for you all!

1) One of my characters is getting his license revoked (for drunk/reckless driving waaaaaaaay too many times). I don't drive or anything, so how exactly does this process work (in the United States; if you want to get specific, Denver, Colorado xD)? Do they take it away from you in court? Or do you have to give it to some official at the DMV or something? x___X

2) This one is for all the Arabic-speakers out there! My male character is telling his wife to shut up. How do you say "shut up" in Arabic? Moreso, he's not a very nice person, so how would you go about saying shut up in the most offensive, degrading way possible? Variations are fine. Transliterated into the English alphabet would be great; both Arabic and English calligraphy would be awesome. :D

3) Okay, here's the last quantum leap of the day. I've heard that Saudis are pretty relaxed when it comes to children. But say you've got this spoiled brat that just NEEDS to be punished. What are some forms of chastisements/discipline (especially corporal)? Or is it pretty much the same way as here in America (Oh Daddy, how you've spanked me so! ;___;)?

Thanks very much. You guys are awesome! x3
