When you are arrested for a DUI in Pennsylvania, you will need to request a DMV hearing within 10 days to challenge the suspension of your license. Failure to do so within the specified time frame usually results in your forfeiting the right to challenge the suspension. It is extremely important that you contact an attorney as quickly as possible following your DUI arrest in order to properly request the hearing and present your defense.
Many people who have been arrested on suspicion of DUI assume that the evidence against them is so overwhelming that they have no choice but to have their license suspended. Still others aren’t even aware of the fact that they have the ability to challenge the suspension of their license. However, with the right defense and a seasoned attorney at your side, you may be able to avoid having your license suspended at all following being arrested for DUI.
It is in your best interest to avoid having your license suspended at all costs. Being unable to legally drive a car can cost you your job. It can also interfere with being able to get to and from doctor’s appointments, the grocery store, and even getting your kids to and from school. If you live in an area where there is little public transportation, this can become even more of an issue.
