DUI is a serious matter that consists of two separate problems: 1: The District Court Criminal Case, and; 2: The Department of Public Safety Driver's License Revocation Process.

Upon arrest the law enforcement agency will provide a piece of paper notifying the arrestee that his/her license has been automatically revoked.  Fortunately, our Constitution requires due process before taking life, liberty, or property.  In a license revocation setting this means filing and appeal with DPS which automatically reinstates the license until DPS conducts a hearing.  You must act fast, however, because the DPS request for hearing must be received by DPS within 15 days of arrest.
