Suspension By Conviction
When a person is convicted of a DUI in Arizona, the court where the conviction took place will get a copy of the abstract to the MVD. Once the Motor Vehicle Division gets this information of your DUI conviction, their internal policies will decide what happens next. If the drunk driving conviction was a first offense in a five year time period, the MVD will not take action because of the conviction if an administrative license suspension has already been granted. In other words, it may make more sense to accept the Administrative License Suspension in certain cases. You need to ask an experienced DUI defense lawyer to see if this applies to your case - CLICK HERE!
