When a person is arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) they have only 10 days to schedule a DMV Hearing. At the DMV Hearing a person will be given a chance to fight against having their driving privileges suspended. A DMV Hearing is completely separate from the criminal court case, but should still be represented by a knowledgeable Downey DUI attorney.
