Saving Your Driver's License

With the Help of a Los Angeles DUI Attorney

If you have been arrested for DUI, you may wonder what will happen to your driver's license. What can you do to save your license? Fortunately, with the help of an experienced DUI defense lawyer, you may be able to retain your license. By representing you at your DMV hearing, your attorney can effectively argue your case and help ensure the DMV returns your license to you.

Upon your DUI arrest, the arresting officer will confiscate your license. He or she will then hand you a pink slip of paper, which is a notice of suspension and acts as a temporary license for 30 days while the DUI court process begins. At this point, you or your attorney have 10 days to schedule your DMV hearing, where you will be able to contest the suspension of your license. If you fail to schedule your DMV hearing, your license will be automatically suspended. This will occur regardless of the outcome of your DUI case, even if you are found not guilty.
