Question: How soon can I legally drive if I have been charged with drunk driving DUI in Van Nuys, CA?

Answer: If you have been charged with a DUI in Van Nuys, CA, you have 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV hearing, and what is called a “stay” on the suspension of your license. If done, the DMV should grant you a new temporary license that will good for a period past the initial 30 day temporary license you were likely given by the arresting officer. If there is a DUI conviction or a loss of the DMV hearing, then your license, this will over-ride a temporary license. You will probably have questions about this as it is confusing.
