The first ten ( 10 ) days after arrest for a DUI in Florida are viewed by most experienced Florida DUI lawyers as one of the most important aspects of your case. The State will try and take your license away for either blowing over the legal limit ( .08 ) or if you refuse to take a breath test. This has to be challenged within the first ten days or else it is forever waived and you will lose your license for the proscribed period. This procedure is commonly referred to as the “Ten Day Rule” for Florida DUI’s.
Making a timely challenge will keep you driving on the road for at least another 4-6 weeks and gives you a chance to prevent the suspension all together.
