Did you know that in Florida, if you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and you provide a breath sample over the legal limit or refuse to provide a breath sample or urine sample, your license is immediately suspended? The officer who pulls you over will seize your license and give you a citation. This actually serves as a temporary permit, but you must act quickly if you are going to preserve your right to drive. Within 10 calendar days of your arrest, you must request an administrative review hearing (informal or formal) with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This is why it’s so important to seek the advice and assistance of an experienced DUI attorney, as soon as possible after your arrest.
