ACT NOW -- YOU MAY HAVE LESS THAN
10 DAYS TO SAVE YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE
When you deliver a sample of blood, breath or urine showing an alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, certain administrative sanctions may apply through the Department of Motor Vehicles in addition to the criminal charges pending against you. If you fail to take immediate action your privilege to drive will be suspended or revoked.
Implied Consent Affidavit
If your alcohol concentration purports to have been .08 or greater, the police gave you two copies of an "Admin Per Se / Implied Consent Affidavit." You were given a pink copy of this form. This document constitutes notice that you have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing in the matter of the administrative or implied consent suspension of your driving privileges. A timely request for a hearing may stay the suspension of your driving privileges. If the hearing results are successful, the suspensions is set aside and your driving privilege is reinstated.
The DMV hearing is also an excellent discovery tool. The hearing before the Department of Motor Vehicles usually takes place months before your criminal trial on the DUI charges. Apart from the issue of your right to drive, the hearing provides the first opportunity to commit police personnel to a "story" under oath. Inconsistencies between their testimony at the DMV hearing and their testimony at trial provides valuable grounds for impeachment.
