In the State of Mississippi, you are almost guaranteed that you will have your license suspended if you are arrested and charged with a DUI. In fact, when you are arrested, the law enforcement officer who stopped you will likely have already confiscated your license and issued you a temporary driving permit that expires after 30 days.
To avoid having your license suspended and your driving privileges taken away for a period of time following your DUI arrest, you must request a DMV hearing within ten days of your arrest. If you fail to do this, your license will automatically be suspended and you will not be able to challenge the suspension. It is absolutely imperative that you request your DMV hearing within ten days of your DUI arrest!
The DMV hearing is separate from the court hearing that you will have to attend for the DUI charges. The DMV hearing is to solely address the issue of your license suspension. While it is possible to request and attend a DMV hearing without representation in the State of Mississippi, you stand a much better chance of avoiding the suspension of your license if you have a skilled, aggressive attorney at your side.
