Many wonder about the immediate issue of how to get a license back after a DUI. You start out with a 10-day temporary driver license following arrest.
You have a short window, just 10 days, to request an administrative hearing once you are released that will potentially allow you to get your license back after the DUI. At that hearing you can contest the suspension. A lawyer handles all the paperwork to request the hearing, since they need to issue subpoenas. It’s extremely important to contact a lawyer right away because of this 10-day window. A DUI is unlike any other crime due to this time restraint. A court-appointed lawyer is not able to assist you in this manner because they do not practice this area of the law.
Once you receive your hearing date in the mail, your temporary driving privilege is extended up to 30 days.
At the hearing, your lawyer will contest the legitimacy of the DUI license suspension itself.
