— Are you arrested for DUI? Protect your driver’s license with immediate legal advice
When someone is charged with DUI, the first thought is what is going to happen in court. An arrest for DUI involves more than just a court appearance. Your driver’s license is in jeopardy. In nearly all DUI arrests, your driver’s license is taken by the police and you are issued a temporary license. This happens if you have taken a breath test and the result is .08 blood alcohol content or more. If the test result is over .15 or more, or if you refuse the test, the situation is even more serious. Your driver’s license can be suspended by the Motor Vehicle Administration for 45 days, 90 days, 120 days, or even a year if you have a prior record.
You must make an important decision within 10 days of your arrest. The Motor Vehicle Administration is in control and the process can be very confusing. It is possible to get a restricted license for employment purposes or the Ignition Interlock may be available, but the decision on whether to ask for an MVA hearing must be made in writing within that vital 10-day period.
It is important to talk to a lawyer immediately after you are arrested for DUI. An experienced lawyer can advise you about your options and help you make a decision that will be best for you in the long run.
