Many people are unaware that a DUI charge brings, in effect, two sets of complex proceedings – one in a court of law, and one at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Each process is totally separate, and the DMV is not bound by any outcome or order of the court relating to the suspension of your license or driving privileges. You must contact the DMV within 10 days of your DUI to request an APS hearing, and to begin the process of working to establish driving privileges and the ultimate outcome of your license. If you do not take appropriate action, the DMV will simply suspend your driving privileges for four months or more.
