First Offense DUI and license issues. DMV suspension comparred to court suspension.

If you are arrested for a DUI, not only do you have to deal with the court system, but you also have to deal with the Department of Motor Vehicles. The courts and the DMV are both able to suspend your license. Typically DMV issues must be addressed first.

What to do if you have been stopped by law enforcement and they suspect you are DUI

Do not give a police officer a reason to arrest you. You are under no legal obligation to answer any questions beyond providing basic identification. You do not have to submit to Field Sobriety Tests and only are required to take a chemical test if arrested for DUI.
