How do I protect my drivers license when fighting a Los Angeles DUI?

If you want to protect your driving privileges then you must contact the Los Angeles DMV to schedule an administrative hearing within ten days after your arrest.

DUI defendants are granted temporary driving license that usually lasts for 30 days. However this license is extended until the time an administrative DMV hearing is held and a decision is made. If you win the DMV hearing then your driving privileges will likely not be revoked until the court passes a verdict.
