Can I still drive after a DUI arrest in Arizona?

Being pulled over and arrested for a DUI in Arizona is a confusing and scary experience. However, just because you are arrested does not mean you can no longer drive. The officer may take your plastic driver’s license but will hand you an Implied Consent / Administrative Per Se Affidavit that consists of a pink piece of paper with a yellow copy attached. Once you receive this, you have 15 days to request a hearing. If you do not, then in 90 days to 1 year you may lose your license. You need to bring these papers to your lawyer for review and have them request the hearing for you. Once you’ve requested a hearing, you will be handed the yellow copy of the Implied Consent / Administrative Per Se Affidavit. On the back is a temporary driving permit which allows you to drive even after the 15 days has run. If you are pulled over for any reason after your citation, this is what you will show the police officer. It shows that you are legally able to drive in the state of Arizona. Remember that this yellow sheet of paper is your actual license until your DMV hearing, which may be two to three months down the road.

If you are suspected of DUI, your license will be suspended if you refuse a blood alcohol test or if you have a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher. When the officer first pulls you over you have a choice of breathalyzer or a blood test. Should you choose the blood test; the results will take longer to arrive. They might not give you the Implied Consent / Administrative Per Se Affidavit, but will mail it to you later after the results of the blood test are determined to be a .08 or above. However, sometimes you will not receive the temporary driver’s permit in the mail. You will still be legal to drive for two to three months or until your hearing.
