Did You Take a Breath Analyzer Test? Contact a Las Vegas DUI Attorney Immediately

Written by: The Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata

Most people do not realize the urgency of contacting a Las Vegas DUI attorney quickly after having a breath analyzer test done. You may not know, but you need to request a hearing with the Dept. of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 7 days of the test.

Can I Still Drive After I Contact a Las Vegas DUI Attorney?

For whatever reason, some people put off contacting a Las Vegas DUI attorney because they think they will not be allowed to drive once they do. This is absolutely false. When you have been arrested and did a breath analyzer test in jail, you are given a temporary driver’s license (a pink paper). This is now your driver’s license and is valid for a full 7 days.  After you submit a request for DMV hearing, you will then be permitted to continue driving until you have a DMV hearing and an administrative judge has decided the status of your driving privileges.

Therefore, do not put off contacting us. The sooner your attorney is retained, the more time they have to get you a temporary driver’s license and properly prepare for the DMV hearing.
