San Diego DUI DMV 10 day requirement 

What does the San Diego DUI DMV 10 day requirement mean?

When you are arrested for a DUI, the police officer should have given you a pink temporary license. This temporary license is good for 30 days, BUT you only have 10 calendar days (that includes holidays and weekends) to request a DMV hearing. If you do not request a hearing within those first ten days, then you will forfeit/give up your opportunity/right for a hearing, and your license will automatically be SUSPENDED or revoked 30 days after your arrest.

SO, it makes sense to have San Diego Attorney Andrea Schneider schedule a hearing for you.  She has won many of them (including a guy who fell asleep behind the wheel on a highway off ramp) and saved many licenses from being suspended.

To schedule a hearing, you must call your local DMV Driver Safety Office. Your hearing will be at the driver safety office. It is essential that you hire an experienced DUI attorney as quickly as possible to ensure you do not miss your 10 day deadline. Even though your temporary license is for 30 days, your DMV hearing must be requested within 10 calendar days (includes weekends and holidays) of your arrest.

You DO NOT want to miss the DMV 10 day requirement after DUI arrest.  If you do, you automatically lose.  

When you hire San Diego Attorney Andrea Schneider to handle your DUI,  she will request your DMV Hearing for you, and you will most likely not need to attend the hearing.  She has won many DMV hearings on technicalities even when the client had over a .o8 BAC which means blood alcohol content.

This can be a very stressful and scary time for you.  San Diego Attorney Andrea Schneider will make this as easy as possible for you.   She helps good people through bad times.  Call Andrea at (619) 518-0476 or email her at
