For example, at the time of an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol, your license can be suspended for six months, and if you refuse a breathalyzer test at the scene, your license can be automatically revoked for a year. However, you can take legal action to contest your license suspension, but you have to act quickly. In Florida, you have ten days following your arrest to request an administrative review hearing with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). After ten days and a failed breathalyzer or blood test, your license will be suspended for six months.
Losing your license can impact every area of your life. The consequences can be especially detrimental if you have to drive for your job to earn a living for yourself and your family. A knowledgeable criminal attorney can make sure you do everything possible to keep your license, or work to get your driver’s license back if it has already been revoked.
