What Happens After Your DUI Arrest in Los Angeles?
Being charged with a DUI or drunk driving can be a life altering experience and can have a very adverse affect on an individual's future.
One of the obstacles to overcome regarding your charges is the DMV hearing. This is a separate issue than your court hearing and it should be taken seriously.
After you are charged with a DUI/DWI the arresting officer will take your license and issue a temporary license for 30 days.
The arresting officer then submits your license and a full report to the Department of Motor Vehicles regarding the incident. You will be notified of any suspension or revocation of your license and you have 10 days following your receipt of the notice from the police officer to file a request for a hearing.
If you fail to schedule the DMV Hearing, your license will automatically be suspended after your temporary 30 day license expires.
It is vital at this point to obtain the help of a qualified DUI attorney who can assess your situation and assist you in achieving the best outcome possible with your DMV hearing.
There are a number of issues to be addressed that can affect the outcome of your hearing. Issues like how did the officer conduct their investigation, what was done/said, what equipment was used for a field test and why did the officer pull you over in the first place?
