Save Your LicenseSave your license: The DMV Hearing
When you get arrested or cited for driving under the influence, the officer will give you a pink piece of paper with "APS" written at the top. Assuming your license was valid before the stop, this paper is your temporary license, and it is valid for 30 days. After this, your license will be suspended for a period of time. If you wish to challenge the suspension, you must contact the DMV within 10 days. Your license will then be valid at least through a decision after the hearing.
At the hearing, the DMV usually must prove that:
- You were driving
- You were lawfully pulled over
- Your blood alcohol was a .08% or higher at the time of driving.
