Understanding California’s 10 Day Rule

Riverside DUI Lawyer Working to Protect Your Driving Privileges

Any DUI charge has two separate parts: the criminal charge, which is addressed in criminal court, and the license suspension which is addressed through the DMV. When arrested for a DUI, you will be given a temporary license that will expire in 30 days unless you take immediate action to avoid the suspension. You have only 10 days from the time of the arrest to arrange a DMV hearing to challenge the license suspension.
