After a Jacksonville DUI arrest, normally, the driver receives a 10 day temporary driving permit. During this time period, his Jacksonville DUI Attorney should request a DMV hearing which will occur within 30 days of such request. During this 30 day period, the Jacksonville DMV will issue a temporary driving permit. After the hearing, the DMV will either reverse the Jacksonville DUI suspension or uphold it. If the DMV upholds the Florida driver’s license suspension, you may be eligible for a hardship license.
- Jacksonville DUI will a blood or breath alcohol level or .08 or higher: In this scenario, a driver must wait 30 days, after the suspension occurred, before he can obtain a hardship license. The clock does not begin to run until the Florida driver’s license is actually suspended, so you must wait until after the temporary driving permit expires.
- Jacksonville DUI where the driver refused the chemical test: In this scenario, the driver must wait 90 days, instead of the 30 days stated above.
