Transcript - My Drivers License was taken away after DUI arrest - what can I do?

So you've been arrested for driving under the influence and your California driver's license has been taken from you. What do you do next?

The first thing you need to know is you must request a Department of Motor Vehicle hearing within the first ten days or you forfeit your right to have a hearing. If you request a hearing within the first ten days, you will be given a temporary license allowing you to continue to drive pending your hearing. Your lawyer can request your temporary license for you. Your lawyer can request your hearing and then you will be entitled to an administrative hearing to try to have your license returned to you.

It's very important that you contact an attorney and then you request that hearing within the first ten days. If you don't request the hearing within the first ten days you forfeit your right to have a hearing and your license will automatically go into suspension.

Contact my office. We will assist you. I'll meet with you. I'll review your rights as regards the administrative hearing. I can request a hearing for you and I can conduct a hearing for you. I can also get you a temporary license allowing you to continue to drive pending the hearing.
