Miami is a tough place to get around if you do not have a driver’s license. Even though it’s a major city with an expansive metropolitan area, public transportation is limited and hugely unreliable. Thankfully, in July of 2013 a change in Florida’s administrative suspension laws allows for you to request eligibility review to obtain a business purpose permit within 10 days of a DUI arrest.
In order to request eligibility review, you need to waive your right to a hearing before the Bureau of Administrative Reviews of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. By waiving your right to fight the suspension of your driver’s license, you will not be able to challenge the suspension and the suspension will remain on your driving record.
If you are arrested for DUI and are considering waiving your right to a formal review hearing to seek eligibility review, I cannot urge you enough to speak with a Miami DUI attorney before you do so you can be advised of the pros, cons and potential consequences of waiving your right to fight the suspension of your driver’s license.
