Daytona Beach DUI Lawyer Kevin J. Pitts defends individuals in Volusia County and the surrounding areas that are accused of driving under the influence (DUI). If you have been arrested for DUI in Florida you must act quickly to prevent your license from being administratively suspended. Under Florida law if you are arrested for drunk driving and refused a lawful test of your breath, blood or urine your license will be administratively suspended 10 days after arrest. The first 90 days of the administrative DUI refusal suspension does not allow a DUI hardship license. If you had a breath alcohol or blood alcohol test with a balance over .08% your license will be administratively suspended 10 days after your arrest. The first 30 days of the administrative DUI suspension for a breath or blood alcohol content over .08% does not allow you to obtain a DUI hardship license. By taking the information off of your DUI citation and completing a simple form with a copy of your DUI citation and a $25 fee you can obtain a 42 day temporary license. The form needs to be mailed or hand delivered to the Bureau of Administrative Reviews in Daytona Beach at 995 Orange Ave, Daytona Beach, FL 32114.
