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 first 10 days after DUI are important.
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%. The police will suspend your license for one year if you refused the test. The courts will automatically suspend your license for six months if you took the test and the reading was .08% or higher. Have you ever had your license suspended for a DUI in the past, you are facing a suspension of 18 months.
