There’s really only one way you can avoid getting a DUI (driving under the influence) and that’s not drinking and driving. However, many people lose their licenses and bring their lives a lot of complication because they were arrested for drinking and driving.
The Utah Department of Safety has a list of things that happen after you’ve been arrested for a DUI. Below is what you need to know.
- Officer will give you a citation that serves as a temporary license for 29 days after he/she confiscates your license.
- Cars are often impounded after an arrest and that’s something you need to deal with.
- You need to request a hearing within 10 days.
Suspension times vary and are outlined on the Department of Safety page. You can find it here.
