10-Day Rule for DUI Charges in La Mesa
DUI Attorney for DMV Hearings & Court Proceedings
Once you are charged with DUI, you only have 10 days to inform the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that you are seeking a stay and hearing. If you do not contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest, the temporary license that you were given at the time of your arrest will expire at the end of 30 days and your license will be suspended. It is important to note that the 10 days include weekends and non-business days.
When you call the DMV to request a hearing, you will be asked if you plan on hiring an attorney. If you do plan on hiring an attorney, the DMV will then give you five days to have your attorney reach out to them to schedule a DMV hearing. This is where I can help you.
As your La Mesa DUI defense lawyer, I can:
- Counsel you on your rights and options;
- Schedule your DMV hearing;
- Carefully prepare you for your hearing;
- Represent you at your hearing; and
- Handle every aspect of your criminal DUI case as well.
Requesting Your DMV Hearing
When you call the DMV to request a stay and hearing, you will need to have several documents ready. If you request a stay, you will be able to drive at least for two more months. If you request a hearing, you will have the opportunity to prevent the suspension of your license. Whichever you request, make sure to write down the name of the DMV employee that helped you, in addition to the date and time that you called. Information that you will need, and which should be found on the ticket, include your driver's license number, date of arrest, place of arrest, the arresting officer's name and ID number, and the type of test that you took.
