You have
10 days to make an important decision!

Within 10 days of being
arrested or receiving a ticket for a Florida DUI you must either request a
formal review hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles, or, if you are
eligible, waive the hearing.
Your
attorney may be able to apply for the hearing and obtain for you a temporary hardship license
for a period of time. If you do not request the formal review hearing, and you
do not waive it, at the end of the 10 days after your arrest, you will lose
your ability to drive for a period of time. Ordinarily, if someone takes a
breath test and blows over .08, after the 10 days have expired there is a 30
day period that the person can not get a permit and can not drive.

** IMPORTANT–As of July
2013 on a first time DUI arrest you may be able to get a hardship license and
avoid any hard suspension without serving any time without driving. You must act within the first 10 days. Call us so we can explain whether this is a
decision right for you and if so, how you may be able to keep your ability to
drive no matter what the ultimate outcome of your case is.

What
constitutes a Florida DUI?

Driving
under the influence is defined as driving, or being in actual physical control
of a vehicle while under the influence of either alcoholic beverages, any
chemical substance set forth in Florida statute 877.111, or any controlled
substance under Florida’s drug laws, chapter 893, when a person is affected to
the extent that the person’s normal faculties are impaired.

DUI
is often referred to as a crime of opinion.
Although, now available to law enforcement and used quite often are
items such as video recording of a person’s driving and field sobriety
exercises, a breath test, a blood test, or urine test. (link these to text
below) There are rules set forth in the Florida statutes as to when a person
may be stopped and for what reasons, as well as how and when each of these
tests may be requested and/or administered.

It
is extremely important that you discuss with a qualified Tampa Florida DUI
Lawyer the facts of your present arrest, any previous alcohol-related stops or
arrests, and any DUI or similar type convictions whether in the state of
Florida or anywhere else. Your discussions with your attorney are confidential.
It is important for your attorney to know these matters in order to properly
represent you and take the proper actions regarding your case. Call us toll free at 866-786-5297
