The criminal proceedings will commence automatically and you will be in court with your attorney as the case progresses.
The Utah Driver’s License Division proceeding also commences automatically and will suspend your license without setting a hearing. In order to participate and defend your driving privileges you must request the hearing within (10) days of receiving the citation. If your license is suspended the suspension will be substantial.

Needless to say, that suspension of your driver’s license for any length of time can have a significant impact on your day-to-day life. If you have been charged with DUI in Utah and want to protect your license you must request a hearing immediately.
