Answer: First, a DMV hearing needs to be requested within 10 days of your arrest, or else it is likely that your license will automatically be suspended by the DMV. An attorney can handle this for you (as well as the DMV hearing, to try to protect your license. If there is a 1st DUI conviction, one of the penalties includes a 6 month license suspension, but you would likely be eligible for a work restricted license during that time. Also, additional consequences for a DUI can be severe, and include jail time. There is a lot more to this. Call me at 818-336-1384 if you want to discuss further. I may be able to get the DUI charge dismissed and reduced to a lesser charge in which case there would be no consequences to your license based on the criminal court matter.
