What Happens After You've Been Charged With a DUI?

Getting arrested for DUI, spending any time at all in jail and having to get your car out of impound can just be an awful experience. You may feel exhausted, grimy from the jail and even anxious or scared about what happens next. It's completely natural to feel this way. You are probably asking yourself what now? What are the penalties, what do I do about my license and where do I go from here?

Whether its school, work or basic errands, we need to drive to maintain our livelihood. Needless to say, your first step is to get your license back. In Florida, you have several options. If you have never lost your license before for a DUI, you may be eligible to obtain an immediate hardship license at the department motor vehicles. The good thing is you don't even need a lawyer. The process is called a waiver hearing because you are simply waiving your right to challenge your suspension and in return you receive a hardship license. The hardship license allows you to get to school or work and run errands that are necessary to your daily life.

Penalties For A DUI in Florida

  • Penalties: The consequences of a DUI can range from monetary fines and jail time to years of driver's license suspension and the inability to obtain auto insurance. The severity of the consequences will depend on your situation. Our firm can assess your situation and help you understand the penalties you may be facing.

As former prosecutors we have extensive knowledge of the Florida's DUI laws, we take the time to break down the information and educate you to ensure you fully understand the situation.

We discuss information such as:

  • Plea Agreements: Once you plead no contest to Driving Under the Influence, it stays on your criminal record. You may appeal the sentence within 30 days of the plea agreement being accepted, but the no contest plea is the same as being found guilty, so your record is affected.
  • Pre Trial Diversion: A pre trail diversion is an option that depending on your case you may be eligible for.

What Do I Need To Do to Get My Hardship License?

If this is the first time you've lost your license for an alcohol related offense, you need to enroll in the DUI level one school sponsored by the Florida Safety Council. Second, you need to take that enrollment paperwork to the DMV and ask to waive your hardship hearing. You will need to pay approximately $25 dollars to apply to waive your hearing and a couple hundred dollars more to obtain the actual license.
