Is Your License Suspended Immediately After a DUI?

license suspended

If you have been arrested for DUI, you are probably wondering if your license will be suspended immediately. While you think this might be the case, Salt Lake City DUI attorneys from InfiniTeam Legal Solutions explain that every DUI situation is different and that the following information is quite helpful.

10-day Permit Immediately after the DUI

During your arrest for DUI, the arresting officer may seize your driver’s license and issue you with a citation, which will serve as a temporary license for the next 44 days. If you do not request a hearing within 10 days after the arrest, you automatically forfeit any rights to challenge the suspensions. If you file the written request within the 10 days, get a civil administrative hearing and win it, your license will not be suspended and you can continue to drive instead of having the license suspended on the 45th day.

General Suspension

Once the ten days elapse, you may have your license suspended for a period of 4 months to 3 years. If you are a first time DUI offender, there is a compulsory suspension of 120 days. However, Salt Lake City DUI attorneys explain that a DUI arrest does not mean an automatic conviction.

Civil Administrative Hearing Review to Challenge the Suspension

If you do not file to challenge the citation or you lose your review hearing, then the suspension of 4 months to 3 years begins 45 days after you were cited for DUI.

Failure to Take the Blood, Breath or Urine Tests

If you fail to take the blood, breath or urine tests and the officer reports that as a refusal to the Driver’s License Division then your driver’s license may be suspended for a longer period of time.

In case you are arrested for DUI, it is important to immediately seek legal advice. InfiniTeam Legal Solutions handle many DUI cases and are able to help.
