Administrative Per Se Hearing Once arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, you must take immediate action to protect your driving privileges. You only have 10 days to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles to request an administrative per se hearing. Therefore, it is important that you act immediately. If you fail to request an administrative per se hearing within 10 days from the date of your arrest, the Department of Motor Vehicles will likely suspend or revoke your driving privileges.
Please call the Department of Motor Vehicles Driver Safety Office immediately if you are currently within the 10-day limit and request an in-person hearing.
The length of the suspension imposed by the department will depend on whether you have any prior suspensions for DUI arrests. Please keep in mind that any license suspension imposed by the Department of Motor Vehicles is independent of the criminal court case that may result from the arrest.
