If you are arrested in Florida for a DUI, the clock starts to tick right away regarding the consequences you face. You have a period of 10 days from the day you are arrested to take action and save your license. In most cases, it is best to hire a criminal defense lawyer in Miami to fully understand your rights and options.
The fact is, the length of your license suspension depends on if you refused to take a breath test, or if you took the breath test and the reading was over .08%. If you refused the test, your license is suspended for one year. If you took the test and the reading was .08% or higher, your license is automatically suspended for six months. If you have ever had your license suspended for a DUI in the past, you are facing a suspension of 18 months.
