DUI Consequences: The Suspended Driver’s License

Life with a suspended license is, to put it nicely, different. No more driving the kids to practice. No quick trips to the store. Nothing.

What you need to know if you’ve recently been arrested for a DUI is that you have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing which can prevent the automatic loss of your driving privileges. Wait too long and you’ll find out first-hand what life with a suspended license is really like.

Waiting too long to act after a DUI arrest can quickly lead to a suspended license. For experienced DUI defense lawyers with proven success — contact Peagler & Hollett, LLC in Birmingham, Alabama, today.

Being arrested on suspicion of DUI doesn’t have to mean a suspended or revoked license. By contacting and getting our firm involved as early in the process as possible — we can try to save your driving privileges while the criminal case is still pending.

In terms of your DUI defense, our attorneys will be busy investigating the circumstances surrounding the stop; the tests, testing equipment and police procedures used; and the police report and test results. On many occasions, these efforts have resulted in dropped or reduced charges, acquittals, and deferred prosecutions for previous clients. On the other hand, if a DUI conviction seems likely we´ll work to help you obtain an occupational or restricted license so that you can continue to drive yourself to work.
