DUI is a crime that has two components: DMV and criminal. When you are pulled over for drunk driving in the state of Florida, you have 10 days to challenge a DUI before the window closes and you must serve your sentence from the initial arrest. This applies to your driver’s license privileges and will also impact your ability to get a hardship license that will allow you to continue to drive for important issues, such as school or work. Unfortunately, after the 10 days have passed, your opportunity to challenge the suspension of your license has also passed. That is why you need to act now! You can waive your right to a formal review hearing at the DMV if you choose and get a hardship license immediately. This needs to be done within the 10 days as well though.
