10 Days to Request DMV Hearing
DUI is a criminal offense, not to be mistaken with a traffic violation such as speeding or running a red light. If you were arrested on suspicion of Driving Under the Influence of alcohol, the Culver City Police Department officers or other law enforcement officers likely confiscated your driver's license and issued a pink "temporary" license that is good for 30 days. However, you only have 10 days from the arrest date to request a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Administrative Per Se (APS) hearing from the DMV Driver Safety Office. If you fail to request an APS hearing, your driver's license will automatically be suspended upon expiration of the temporary license. How long the license remains suspended will depend on whether or not you have prior DUI offenses and how many. An experienced Culver City DUI Lawyer should be contacted as soon as possible following a DUI arrest to ensure that your driving privilege is protected.
