DMV Court Hearings - Florida DUI Law

If you have been arrested for DUI, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended by the Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). You must contest the license suspension and file for a hearing with the DHSMV within 10 days of your arrest. If you do not file for a hearing within 10 days of the arrest you will lose your opportunity to contest the suspension. Therefore, it is important that you contact a Tampa DUI attorney immediately after being arrested for DUI.  

At the DHSMV hearing, the hearing officer will review the police record of the arrest, the alcohol chemical tests, and other relevant evidence to determine whether or not the license suspension should be upheld. It is important to have an attorney with you at the hearing to challenge the evidence against you and to put forward any evidence that may be in your favor. In certain circumstances, evidence against you can be thrown out at the hearing with the help of an experienced Tampa DUI attorney. For instance, evidence may be excluded from the hearing if the initial stop was unconstitutional, or the chemical blood alcohol tests were not administered properly. Furthermore, an attorney can present evidence in your favor and cross examine witnesses to persuade the hearing officer against upholding the suspension.

The DHSMV hearing does not determine if the driver will face criminal penalties for DUI. It only determines whether or not the driver will retain driving privileges. If the driver is successful at getting the license reinstated at the DHSMV hearing, the driver may still lose their driving privileges if later found guilty in the criminal DUI hearing. Therefore, it is important to have competent legal representation during both your DHSMV and criminal DUI hearing.
