What to do after a DUI arrest, is what you may be asking yourself. There are two things you MUST DO immediately after being released from a DUI charge. Before ten days after an arrest, you must contact the California DMV for a hearing to challenge the upcoming automatic suspension of your driver's license. IF you fail to do so, your license will automatically be suspended for at least four months. However, even if this method fails, there are other ways to request the DMV to re-issue your license.

Secondly, you must attend the court hearing given to you when you were released. If you do not go, the judge will likely issue a warrant for your arrest. A DUI with felony or injury charges requires that the person charged attend the first court hearing. Obtaining legal counsel is always a good idea. If your case is in the county of Orange, we suggest you seek out a good Orange County DUI Lawyer.
