Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.
Where were you arrested?
License Suspension Hearings – Scottsdale
The suspension of your license in a DUI case is a separate proceeding from the criminal charges. It is possible to lose your license even if you win your criminal case. You should be represented by an experienced DUI defense lawyer at the MVD hearing.
You Must Act Within 15 Days!
Early intervention by an attorney is important in your criminal case. It is also important to act quickly to preserve your ability to drive. You must contact the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division within 15 days of your DUI arrest to request a license suspension hearing. Failure to meet this deadline results in an automatic suspension, with no opportunity for a new hearing and less likely for a restricted license (work permit).
Call the Rosenstein Law Group immediately at 480-248-7666 to protect your right to drive and get a jump on your criminal case. We provide a free initial consultation, serving the Phoenix area, Maricopa County, Pinal County and Pima County.
DUI License Suspension
For a first offense of drunk driving (.08 blood alcohol content), your license will be suspended for 90 days. If your BAC was higher, if there were aggravating factors, or if this is your second or third offense, your suspension will be longer, or it will be revoked. Revocation means that your license is canceled, and you must petition the MVD to get your license reinstated after the proscribed period.
Restricted Driving Permit (Work Permit)
After 30 days of suspension, some drivers will qualify for a restricted license that allows them to drive to and from work, to school, to medical appointments and certain other authorized travel for the remaining period. (Higher level and repeat DUI offenses may not receive a work permit.) We help clients get this permission from the MVD.
