California APS Administrative Hearing:
If the person arrested for a California DUI wishes to have the hearing (with the California DMV) held before the effective date of the suspension order, his or her California DUI lawyer must request the hearing within 10 days of receiving the DMV notice of the suspension order.
The person must be served with a notice of the suspension or revocation order. The suspension or revocation does not become effective until 30 days after being given the notice, or until the end of a stay granted pending administrative hearing on the matter.
It is important that the California DUI attorney request a stay and the person receive a Notice of Stay so the person can keep driving. This applies to both California and out-of-state drivers because of the Interstate Compact’s reciprocity provisions.
