Driver's License Suspension Police

At the time the officer has arrested and booked you for a Los Angeles DUI, he or she will hand you an order suspending your driver's license, effective 30 days from the date you are served. If the chemical test indicates that your blood alcohol content (BAC) is above .08%, then the officer will immediately confiscate your driver's license, and you will be issued a pink piece of paper called an Order of Suspension. The length of the suspension will depend on a number of factors and the skills of your Los Angeles DUI attorney:

  1. Have you previously been convicted of a DUI?
  2. Was there a refusal to comply with a blood, breath, or in the case of drugs, a urine test?
  3. Was your BAC more than .15%?
  4. Was there an injury to a person at the time you were DUI?
  5. Were you speeding more than 30 MPH over the posted speed limit on a highway or more than 20 MPH over the speed limit on a city street?
  6. Were you 14 or younger at the time you were arrested for DUI?

This Order of Suspension is considered a formal notice of suspension, as well as a temporary license valid for 30 days. You must request a DMV hearing to object to the suspension with 10 days.

The length of the DMV suspension will usually last 4 months. The length may be reduced, but it will be a very restricted license that allows you to drive to work, school or necessary appointments only. However, the DMV requires a minimum of 1 month full suspension. In order to qualify for a restricted license, you will need to provide proof of enrollment in a DUI alcohol school and proof of insurance. However, if you refused to submit to a chemical test, the suspension is for 1 year and you cannot get a restricted license.

Michael Kraut is outstanding! He genuinely cared about my case and instructed my mom and I throughout the entire process. He was very clear on what he needed in order to receive the best results. He kept us updated until the end. I thank him so much for getting my charges rejected. I highly recommend him to anyone with legal needs! Shaquan
I contacted Michael with concern for my personal and business reputation. He was very reassuring and confident the entire time. After about 3 weeks it was determined that no charges were being filed by any agency and I was in the clear of any investigation. One thing that is amazing is just how FAST Michael is at replying to phone calls, texts, and even emails! We are talking under 30 minutes in most cases. That is unheard of for most attorneys! Michael is incredible and not your typical run of the mill attorney. For best results hire him if you feel like you might be under investigation or could face charges. Even if you know you are innocent it is best to take care of the smoke before it becomes a fire. Brad
Michael Kraut is-hands down-the best criminal defense attorney and I can't begin to thank him for all that he did for me and my family. I reached out to him in the middle of the night and less than a couple hours later, he had gotten back to me and scheduled a meeting. He's a no-nonsense attorney who knows how to get the job done! From the second we retained him, I had peace of mind in knowing that we were in the best hands possible. If Michael Kraut couldn't get it done, I knew that it couldn't be done at all. You can't put a price tag on your freedom. He was worth every single penny. Lida
Michael Kraut is an outstanding attorney. He was extremely professional, and straightforward, yet sensitive with my case. I am confident I made the right choice by hiring Michael. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly experienced lawyer. Daniel
Michael Kraut - I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for ​my son. When I came to you I read that you used to be a district attorney but I never knew how much that meant until I watch you in court. I knew it took 3 months but the final day when I heard the judge say that all charges were dismissed it was all worth it! I will always be grateful for all that you did for us. A.N.
