    Answered . Chances are the form was a 702 form (my guess) - which would give you a renewed right to a hearing with the DMV to fight the suspension...assuming it wasn't a refusal case.

    The 702 issue when the DA dismisses is a little complicated...you should contact a local DUI attorney and see if you can get some help. You may have to pay. Just because the DA dismisses, doesn't mean the DMV will. They are 2 separate cases with different rules.

    You need to act quickly - like TODAY! Because the DMV dates are quick and deadly if you miss.

    Good luck with your situation.

    Answered . I agree with Mr. Williamson. I would also like to add that assuming your case is a first time non-refusal DUI, you can always apply for a restricted driver's license 30 days after your suspension begins, as long as you (1) enroll in a 3-month DUI program, (2) obtain an SR-22 from your insurance company and (3) pay $125 reissue fee to the DMV.
