Getting Your License Back After A DUI In Maryland

After an arrest for drunk driving in Maryland, there are many administrative and criminal procedures to follow. Drivers who have a blood alcohol concentration of .08, which is above the legal limit, must turn over their driver's license to police. Your license is suspended. However, you will be able to drive with a 45-day temporary license.

Even though you may have a temporary license, it is important to act quickly if you want to extend the temporary license beyond the 45 days. To do so, you must request an administrative hearing, which is scheduled typically four to six weeks out. How do you know if you should request the administrative hearing? It is a good idea to consult with an attorney to determine whether a hearing would be beneficial or detrimental to your case.
