In most cases, your
DUI citation serves as a permit to drive for 10 days from the date of your
arrest. If an administrative formal review hearing is requested, you will
(in most cases) receive a permit to drive during the pendency of the hearing
(approximately 42 days). If we win the hearing, your license will be reinstated.
If a hearing has not been requested, or if you do not win the hearing,
you will be ineligible to drive for a period of 30 days if you had a breath
test result of .08 or higher, or 90 days if you refused. In most cases,
you will then be eligible for a hardship license for the remaining period
of your suspension.
To obtain a hardship license you will need to contact the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and arrange to fill out an Application
for a hardship license. The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
will require that you enroll in the
DUI Counter Attack School and obtain a certificate from the Clerk of the Court
showing that you have no outstanding tickets. Once you have enrolled in the
DUI Counter Attack School and obtained a certificate from the Clerk of the
Court, there will be an informal hearing conducted so that you may receive
your hardship license- if you qualify. Please note: There are certain
ramifications when you enroll in the
DUI Counter Attack School that you may want to consider and discuss with our
firm before you take such action.
