Know and Protect Your Rights in a Criminal Defense Matter





Will I Be Able to Drive After I am Released From Being Detained On DUI Charges?

You are going to leave the jail with a pink form that gives you the authority to drive for thirty days. It will also tell you that you are entitled to an Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing to decide whether your license should be suspended. You must request this hearing within 10 days. You will be allowed to drive pursuant to this temporary license so long as you have timely requested your APS hearing and until a decision regarding your license suspension is made at the APS hearing. If you do not request your hearing within 10 days, then your license will automatically be suspended. The pink form expires after 30 days and you will receive notice in the mail about the length of your suspension from the DMV. It is always best to request a hearing to preserve your right to argue against the suspension on your license.
