On your DUI citation that you would have received from the officer, it states you have 10 days to request either a formal or informal review of the DMV's suspension of your license. If you did not do that, you probably would be deemed to have waived your right to a hearing and to challenge the suspension.
You will need to take DUI school in order to get your DL reinstated.
My answers on Avvo.com are intended to help clarify the legal process in your situation to the extent possible on this website. Criminal law can be very complicated and very serious. Every case is different and my answers are not intended to serve as legal advice unless so stated. If you have been charged with a crime you could be placed on probation or face incarceration. Please contact an attorney if you think you need legal advice in a criminal matter.
I agree with the other attorneys. You will need to show proof of enrollment (not completion) of DUI school in order to get your business purpose only license. Had you hired an attorney within the 10 days of the arrest the bad stop argument could have been made at the administrative hearing and its possible you wouldnt have lost your license at all. Because that was not done you'll have to jump through some extra hoops. But congratulations on getting your DUI thrown out!!!
I agree with the other attorney's answers. You do have to enroll in the DUI counter attack school in order to qualify for a BPO (business purposes license). You will also need to complete the school in order to have the BPO portion of your license removed after the 6 mos. has expired. There is no suspension on your DL for DUI, but you still have whats known as a administrative suspension that has to be dealt with DMV.
