Under California Law, when an individual is arrested for Driving Under the Influence it is standard procedure for the Police to take your Driver's License and hand you a pink Temporary License. Within that document is an admonishment that it is for you, the arrestee, to formally request a hearing to protect your driving privilege from a related DMV License Suspension Proceeding which is separate and apart from your criminal case. You have ten days to formally request this hearing or your right to drive is effectively lost. We recommend hiring counsel within this ten day period to preserve your DMV hearing rights and contest it keeping you driving legally during the pendency of your DMV case. With an effective and aggressive defense your driving privileges can be protected by our firm.
