After you have been arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles or Southern California, one of the most important considerations for most people is whether they will retain their license, or at least retain some driving privileges. The loss of your driver privileges is one of the worst consequences of a DUI arrest, and can affect your life seriously, both professionally and socially.
At the Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin, we are dedicated to getting your life back on track as quickly as possible. A big part of that is helping you restore your driving privileges by taking the proper steps to help you obtain your temporary license while the other legal proceedings are under way.
The Administrative Hearing
When you are arrested for a DUI in California, your license will be confiscated. In order to get a temporary license, an administrative hearing will need to be scheduled within 10 days of the date of your arrest. Jonathan Franklin can help you every step of the way to help you restore your driving privileges.
If the administrative hearing is not scheduled, your license suspended most likely will be suspended.
