THE DMV AND DUI
A person who is arrested for a DUI generally has their license to drive confiscated by the arresting officer. Upon seizure, a notice will be generally given to the driver notifying them that they have ten (10) calendar days to request an APS hearing from the DMV. If that hearing is not requested within the specified time , then their driving privilege will generally be revoked/suspended for a specified time. Sometimes the worst thing you can do in a DUI case is represent yourself or have an attorney appointed by the judge who is simply too busy to help you. Generally, misdemeanor DUI cases are heard in Departments 140 and 141 of the Airport Courthouse and are prosecuted by the Los Angeles City Attorney or District Attorney. http://www.airportcriminaldefenders.com/
