DMV Hearing Lawyer Miami
You have 10 days to save your license
When you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), it is not solely a criminal procedure. The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is also involved, since a DUI also affects your right to drive. When you are first arrested for drunk driving, the arresting officer will confiscate your driver's license and issue you a 10-day temporary license.
You then have 10 days to request a hearing with the DMV, a hearing where you can request license restoration. If you fail to request your hearing within that time frame, your license will be suspended according to Florida's DUI and license suspension laws.

What to Expect at the Administrative License Hearing
DMV hearings are different than court hearings. They take place at your local DMV and are presided over by an administrative judge who does not have a law degree. If you can convince the administrative judge that your charges were not deserved, your license may not be suspended.
At this hearing, you will present your argument before the administrative judge and prove to him or her that you:
- Were unlawfully stopped or arrested;
- That you were not informed of the consequences of refusing a blood test;
- That you were never asked to submit to a blood test; or
- That your test results were less than 0.08%.
