Scheduling a Hearing
If you have been arrested for DUI, your driver's license is in danger of being suspended. After a DUI arrest, you have 10 days to schedule a DMV hearing to determine the status of your driving privileges. During this hearing you can explain the reasons why you should be allowed to keep your ability to drive. If you fail to schedule the hearing, your license will be automatically suspended 30 days after your arrest. A lawyer should be contacted at once if you or a loved one has been arrested for DUI to arrange your DMV hearing. It is also advantageous to have a knowledgeable lawyer by your side during the hearing to help protect your driving privileges. Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP is an experienced
