Consequences Of A DUI On The Driver’s License
Under Utah Code Section 41-6a-509 and 53-3-223, two different types of driver license suspensions can be imposed.
- Administrative Driver License Suspension After a DUI Arrest
Under the administrative driver’s license suspension, the arresting officer takes the driver’s license when the arrest occurs. The arresting officer then gives the person arrested for DUI a 29 day temporary license. During that time period, the driver must request a hearing in order to contest the administrative suspension. The burden of proof is whether or not the arresting officer had reasonable grounds to believe that the person arrested violated Utah’s DUI laws.
- Court Ordered Driver License Suspension After a DUI Conviction
Additionally, if the individual is convicted of DUI, then the court can impose a driver’s license suspension and the time served for the administrative suspension generally counts towards that court ordered suspension.
