Arrested for Pasco DUI? You Have 10 Days to Request Review Hearing


In Florida, if you have been arrested for DUI and your breath test result was .08 or higher, or if you refused to take the breath test, the officer probably took your driver’s license from you.


You have only 10 days from the date of arrest to request a formal review hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles to contest your immediate license suspension and attempt to get your license back.

If you fail to request the hearing with the 10-day period, your license will be suspended for either 6 months, 1 year, or 18 months depending on the circumstances. (DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN)

It is important to contact a Pasco County DUI attorney within that 10-day period to discuss what applies to your case. We can apply for the Formal Review Hearing in your behalf and obtain a hearing date. Also, in most cases we can obtain for you a temporary permit to drive until after the hearing.

You have only 10 days to drive after you are arrested using your citation as a driving permit unless you request this hearing.
