One of the most common problems that we run into when representing clients that have been arrested and charged with DUI is the confusing state of the law as it relates to their driver license. This confusion generally starts on the night of the DUI arrest when the arresting officer takes their drivers license and issues them a citation and tells them that that piece of paper is their drivers license for the next 30 days. That is usually the extent of the information our clients are given. They are not told to read the entire citation carefully, or that if they don’t request a hearing with 10 calendar days, they will most likely lose their drivers license with little to no recourse. Our advice to all of our clients is to read the citation completely and carefully. Also, any correspondence that they receive from the Drivers License Division needs prompt attention. Read everything that the Drivers License Division sends. If you have moved, make sure that you have updated the Drivers License Division with your new address as soon as possible. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure the Driver’s License Division has a current address. It is no excuse for a person to say, “I never received that letter from the DLD because they had my old address.” That will never be a defense. So again, read everything that you are given if cited/arrested for a DUI and consult a trained DUI attorney to assist you.
