Most people who are arrested for drunk driving in Paradise Valley understand the risk of license suspension. Many of them are not aware, however, that the issue is taken up by the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) in an independent proceeding that is separate from the criminal case. This is commonly referred to as the MVD hearing.
Under Arizona law, people who have been arrested on suspicion of DUI face an automatic 90-day suspension of their driver’s licenses. According to Arizona’s 15-day rule, they only have 15 days from the date of their arrests to request an MVD hearing to challenge the suspension. If they miss the deadline, the suspension will immediately go into effect.
