|TEN THINGS TO DO IN TEN DAYS|
AFTER YOUR ARREST
If you need to save your driver's license you or your attorney must
usually notify the drivers license bureau immediately!
You must notify the licensing bureau in writing and have a receipt of
delivery, even by fax if necessary. If time is running out or you are late, contact an attorney ASAP!
Don't rely on a telephone call alone. It is well known that when the employee tells you, "you'll be contacted later", something will go wrong.
Even if you did not receive a temporary license paper from the officer, the licensing bureau will take action against your driving privileges immediately.
Even if you have a license from another state, and even if the officer did not take your license, your state may also take action against your driving privileges.
TEMPORARY DRIVER LICENSES are only valid for 7 days after your arrest.
Do not confuse this page's license issue with your criminal court date! Minnesota punishes you both by taking your license in a civil proceeding and then punishing you again in court on criminal charges.
There are three (3) issues at most hearings if you completed a chemical test. (Stop, Charge, Test). If you refused, this fact will be used against you to show your guilt. Usually you must explain refusals completely to win.
The government has the burden of proof to prevail on all DWI issues, or refusal matters. If the government meets the burden of proof on only part of the issues, you win. It's the law!
All your attorney has to do is knock out one issue to save your license & you avoid the harsh civil and criminal penalties!
