What Happens After a DUI Arrest?

Typically, when you are arrested for driving under the influence in the Reno area, law enforcement automatically confiscates your license. In most cases, you will have a temporary permit that allows you to drive for 30 days and then your license will be suspended. To attempt the suspension from not taking place, you must schedule a hearing within 10 days of your arrest. If you choose to hire our firm, we will show up at the hearing and represent you.

There are a number of different factors that usually come into play in a DMV hearing, including:

  • If this is your first offense (or second, or third, etc.)
  • If you have taken a blood test or breath test
  • If you have passed the tests or refused them

There are other circumstances that can apply, such as if you refused a blood test or breath test at the time of the arrest. We would be happy to go over all of these details with you when we meet for a consultation.
