I believe it refers to two different Administrative theories to suspend your driver's license such as on probation and had BAC over .08. The other numbers appear to be dates. Are you under 21 or a commercial driver because those categories can also result in dual actions. Request your hearing with the DMV within 10 days and retain an attorney.

This generally occurs when you are on probation or under 21 and two actions are being taken. These can be the dates that the addition action occurs, but more information is needed to see exactly what you are being charged with.
