​​DUI/DMV Administrative Per Se Hearings (APS)

  • ​Every time you are arrested for a DUI (Alcohol/Prescription/Marijuana)​, you are given a 30 day temporary license. 

  • ​You have 10 days form the date of the arrest to schedule a DMV administrative hearing to protect your license

    • ​If you fail to request a hearing in those first 10 days, you waive your right to a hearing and your license will  be automatically suspended 30 days after your arrest.

    • If a hearing is requested within 10 days of the arrest, the automatic suspension will be prevented and you will have an opportunity to fight the arrest and allegation of DUI.
