Birmingham DUI Two Charges
< Back to Video Library
When you’re arrested for a DUI, you really have two main problems. The first problem is an Administrative Driver’s License action. In Alabama, any person that accepts the privilege to drive on one of our public roadways consents to submit to a chemical test of blood alcohol content. If you refuse to take that test or you take the test and you’re over the limit, the state will seek to administratively suspend your driving privilege.
However, they can’t do so automatically. Because it’s a privilege, constitutionally, under the 14 Amendments due process clause they have to provide you with an opportunity to challenge that suspension. In Alabama you will be given a temporary permit that’s about 45 days, and during that time period there’s three steps that we can take to try to prevent the suspension of your license.
The first step has to be done within 10 days, so it’s very important that you contact an aggressive DUI defense attorney immediately to begin that process.
