Driving Employee- Revoked License

I need some help on an issue. We have an employee who is located in a small branch office- there are a total of 4 employees there. The main part of his job is driving- recently, he got a second DWI and has had his license suspended for 90 days (or will be as of the 10th)- meaning he can't perform his job and since it is such a small office, we don't have any other positions to put him in (besides the fact that he didn't inform us until 2 days before his license will be revoked!)

Can we terminate him without legal ramifications? Any advice as well as supporting evidence would be greatly appreciated!

I assume when the employee was hired he was told that he must have a valid and inforce driver license at all times or that he could lose his job.
