The arresting officer gave me an "Order of Suspension and Temporary License". What does this mean?
When you were arrested, the arresting officer probably confiscated your driver's license. In return he gave you a piece of paper titled "Order of Suspension and Temporary License". This allows you to drive legally for 30 days from the date you were given this order.
What's a DMV hearing and how long do I have to request one?
The DMV hearing is your chance to fight to keep your license from being suspended or revoked after your temporary license expires. This hearing must be requested from the DMV within 10 calendar dates from the date of your arrest. If you delay and miss the deadline, you cannot have a DMV hearing and your license will be suspended or revoked after the first 30 days.
What happens if I lose my DMV hearing?
If you lose your DMV hearing and you did not refuse the chemical test, your license will be suspended for four months on a first time DUI. The second DUI and DUIs after that within 10 years will result in a year suspension.
How long is the license suspension if I refused to take the chemical test?
If you were 21 years of older at the time of arrest and you refused or failed to complete a blood or breath test: Your first DUI will result in a 1-year suspension; A second DUI within 10 years will result in a 2-year revocation; Three or more DUI convictions within 10 years will result in a 3-year revocation.
