What Happens After a DUI Arrest?

Many people assume that a drunk driving charge is not a serious matter, but this assumption is inaccurate.

A conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) can impact your:

  • Freedom, as you could be facing jail time
  • Finances, with expensive fines and fees
  • Your driving privileges are at risk, as your license could be suspended or revoked.
  • Reputation
  • Professional licenses/associations, including a commercial driver’s license (CDL)

Does Florida Immediately Suspend Your License After a DUI?

In Florida, after the arrest of a DUI, your license will be suspended. Ten days after your license suspension, your actions can lead to several outcomes: full suspension of your license, suspension with work privileges, or complete reinstatement. Seeing that if you are a first-time offender, you will have two options and they are either to request an administrative hearing (formal or informal) or forfeit your right to a review hearing in exchange for an immediate business-purpose-only license. The purpose of the first choice is to determine if the police had probable cause to arrest you for the DUI, the second choice will last for 6-12 months license suspension and you must enroll in DUI school. Since the first choice also allows you to receive a 42-day business-purpose-only driver’s license called a “hardship” license immediately, it is far better to request an administrative hearing.

What Happens When You Get a DUI for the First Time in Florida?

If you get a DUI for the first time in Florida you will receive a fine between $500-$2.000, if your blood alcohol level is .15 or higher, or there is a minor in the vehicle then your fine will be between $2,000-$4,000. You will also receive a mandatory 50 hours of community service and will also receive no more than 1 year of probation. In addition, you will also receive no more than 6 months of prison time, or if your blood alcohol content is higher than .15, your prison time will be no higher than 9 months.

Can You Get a DUI Expunged in Florida?

In Florida, the law does not allow expunging or sealing of DUI convictions. However, if you face DUI charges without a conviction, you may have the option to expunge or seal your records. In many cases, if your DUI arrest led to a different offense, like reckless driving, you might be eligible to have your record sealed or expunged.
