I lost my DMV hearing and the suspension begins on Feb 15. My next court date isn't until march though. Will I get credit beginning from Feb 15, or will I have to be suspended for an additional 6 months after pleading guilty in march?

Don't forget to set up your SR-22 insurance, enroll in the first offender program, then get your restricted license asap. You will be able to obtain it after your 30-day "hard" suspension that resulted from the DMV APS hearing holding.
