You have only 10 days to call the DMV after your DUI arrest date to obtain a STAY and a HEARING - otherwise your license is subject to automatic license suspension 30 days after your DUI arrest date.
You must call specific DMV offices and not your local DMV office where you are likely to be misinformed.
These 10 days include weekends. For example if you were arrested on January 5 you only have until January 15 to make a DMV hearing request. If you like you can contact our office (310) 285-1516 and we will obtain a stay and a DMV hearing for you.
