San Jose DUI Defense Attorney
After you are arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) in San Jose, the officer will take possession of your driver’s license. You must then schedule a DMV ( Department of Motor V ehicles) hearing within 10 days of the arrest to contest your license suspension. Failure to schedule a hearing will result in automatic license suspension by the Department of Motor Vehicles. A DMV hearing is usually very technical, and while the arresting officer may testify, the final decision will be based upon the facts presented.
If you lose your DMV case your license will automatically be suspended. The duration of license suspension varies. For first time DUI offenders, license suspension usually lasts for about four months. For multiple DUI offenses, license suspension can last up to three years or may be permanent .
