The dirty secret of the DUI world is that when you get charged with the crime, there are administrative penalties that can be imposed even before a the criminal case is concluded. Arizona MVD has a process that will automatically suspend your license unless specific notices are made within a very short period of time. And, once the time has lapsed, without the notice filed, your license will automatically be suspended. Your attorney should be able to walk you through the process to get the notice filed appropriately. So, if you have been charged with a DUI or a alcohol / driving related offense, contact an attorney right away – or face the Arizona MVD system’s penalties and suspension.
