DHSMV Hearings Attorney (10 Day Rule)
When a driver is pulled over for a DUI and is found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, or refuses to take a breath, blood or urine test, he/she will be arrested and his/her driver’s license will be suspended immediately. The police literally take your driver’s license – one of your most valuable possessions!
At this point, you have only ten days to schedule an administrative hearing with Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) – so time is of the essence! If you do not schedule this hearing within the allotted 10 days, then your license will be automatically suspended for one year. Furthermore, additional DUIs can result in longer periods of license suspension of anywhere from 5 to 10 years to permanent revocation. Don’t delay! Call today!
At the Hearing
The DHSMV hearing gives you and your attorney the opportunity to challenge the automatic suspension and keep your driving privileges. The DHSMV hearing only has jurisdiction over your driving privileges and is separate from your criminal trial. A DHSMV employee will literally act as the judge and prosecutor. This representative will listen to the arresting officer’s testimony, evaluate the facts and evidence the state has against you, and determine if your driving privileges will be revoked, suspended, or sustained.
