A DUI arrest results in two parallel actions, one by the courts, and one by the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Department of Motor Vehicles will seek to suspend or revoke your driver’s license. You have a right to a hearing to appeal this action, but you must request such a hearing within 10 days. If you fail to request the hearing, your right to challenge the revocation will be waived. If no hearing is held, the driver can expect to be without his license for a period of 90 days to one year. It is imperative that a driver looking to protect his driving privileges contact an attorney familiar with the process.
Commercial Driver’s License holders will also be impacted even when driving their personal vehicles. A CDL holder will be subject to a one-year revocation for the first administrative revocation and a lifetime revocation for a second offense.
