If your license is suspended, you will likely have a hearing in Peoria Municipal Court. When you apply for and receive an Arizona license, you give implied consent to any breath or blood test if you are suspected of drunk driving. If you refuse to take a test, it is grounds for an arrest.

Some of the conditions that will cause a license suspension are:
Under ARS §28-3473, “a person may not operate a motor vehicle on a public highway if the person’s privilege to drive a motor vehicle is suspended, revoked, canceled, or refused or if the person is disqualified from driving.” Driving with a suspended license is a class 1 misdemeanor. The penalties include a potential jail sentence for up to six months, probation, and fines up to $2,500. Arizona has a 15-day rule for license suspension charges; you have fifteen days from the arrest time to request an MVD hearing to challenge the suspension. If you do not request a hearing in that time frame, your license suspension will automatically go into effect.
Having your license suspended will mean you cannot commute to work, travel, attend appointments, and visit people the way you used to. You will have to depend on others or public transportation to take you places, which is burdensome and inconvenient.
If you face license suspension, you do not have to feel like punishment is inevitable. The right representation can help you reduce or drop the charges and retain your driving privileges.
