Will I lose my license?
WARNING ABOUT YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
If you have been arrested for DUI, you are in danger of losing your driving privileges and having your driver's license suspended or revoked.
You can -- Save Your Driver's License - - but you must act quickly!
When you have been arrested for DUI, the wheels are immediately put into motion to suspend your ability to drive. You can preserve your right to drive, but you must act immediately. In some cases you have as little as one (1) week to request a hearing and fight to retain your ability to drive. When you retain us to represent you for your DUI case, we represent you in your hearing before the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) administrative process - - we preserve your right to a hearing, appear on your behalf and FIGHT TO KEEP YOUR RIGHT TO DRIVE. Better yet, we do this for FREE. You are reading this correctly. We handle the administrative process with the DMV at NO COST TO YOU, once you retain us as counsel in your criminal DUI case.
If you have been arrested for a DUI in Nevada, you WILL have your license suspended UNLESS you act quickly to preserve your right to drive. Under Nevada law, if the police ask you submit to a breath test (what most people refer to as a “breathalyzer”) for the presence of alcohol and you blow a .08 or more, then the police officer or officers who stopped and arrested you will seize your driver's license and immediately serve you with an order, which will revoke your driver's license. You will be given a temporary license that is only good for one week. This is IMPORTANT – you only have seven days to contact the DMV to request as stay and a hearing regarding the revocation of your driving privileges before you license is suspended. Once this is done, you are able to drive normally, on a temporary license, until the DMV hearing is concluded.
If you have had a blood test to determine the presence and level of alcohol in your blood, then the officer will give you your license back and wait for the results of the blood test. In Nevada, the results from the blood test can take a period of time, often several months, to come back. Once the police obtain the results of your test, they will notify the DMV. The DMV then sends you a letter letting you know your license will be suspended in 7 days. Again, this is IMPORTANT -- if you don't act on your letter from the DMV your license will automatically be suspended and you could be driving on a suspended license without being aware. Driving on a suspended license is, of course, an additional and separate crime.
It is imperative that you have a knowledgeable, experienced DUI/Drunk Driving lawyer who is dedicated to you and your case so that you can properly deal with the charges you face.
