DUI Information Center:

If your abilities are impaired by alcohol while driving, or if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or above, you can be charged with driving under the influence. If you are under 21 years of age, you cannot drive with a BAC of .01% or above. California is a “zero tolerance” state in this regard. Additionally, California follows implied consent laws, meaning that when you sign for your driver’s license, you agree to chemical testing to determine your blood alcohol level if you are suspected of DUI. If you refuse chemical testing, your license will be automatically suspended.

DMV Hearing – You Have 10 Days!

You have 10 days from the date of your arrest to schedule your hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  If you fail to schedule this hearing, your license will be suspended, regardless of whether you are found guilty of DUI or not. Your defense lawyer can schedule your hearing and can represent you in order to help you have your license reinstated while your charges and trial are pending.

What will you without a driver’s license? Don’t take a chance – consult an Orange County DUI attorney who can help you get your license reinstated at your DMV hearing.
