IMPORTANT: 10 Day Rule Following A DUI Arrest

In California, a DUI arrest generates two separate cases -- one in criminal court and one at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).†† With respect to the criminal† case, a DUI arrestee is facing significant penalties including jail time, severe monetary sanctions, forced installation of an ignition interlock device, lengthy drug & alcohol classes, and license suspension.†† In the second case, the DMV will seek to suspend your license between six months to three years.

 

Both cases are time-sensitive; however, the DMV matter requires immediate attention.† When you are first arrested for drunk driving, the police officer most likely confiscated your driverís license.† He or she should have given you a pink slip of paper which serves as both a notice of suspension and a temporary driverís license.† Your DUI defense attorney only has ten (10) days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing with the DMV in order to avoid an automatic suspension of your driving privileges.†† If you have an out of state license, click here.

 

It is imperative you retain an experienced California DUI defense attorney immediate to begin this process before you automatically lose your right to drive.
