When charged with DUI in Riverside, most people do not realize just how many consequences they face. First of all, in most cases you will have to go to a DMV Hearing, which must be requested within 10 days of your arrest, to protect your driving privileges so that your license is not suspended. If you fail to request a DMV hearing, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended for four months or longer if this isn’t your first DUI offense.
