Interviewer: Let’s say I have just been charged with DWI. How can I get pretrial driving privileges?

Mike Fradin: That is one of the most asked questions I get when people come into my office. You can’t get driving privileges for the first 10 days. First thing you need to know is that your license is going to be automatically suspended for 30 days for blowing a .08 or higher or refusing a test. For the first ten days of the 30-day period, you can’t get any driving privileges. After that time is up, from day 11 to day 30, you can get what is called pretrial limited driving privileges.

Interviewer: Are these privileges I automatically get if am a client of yours?

Mike Fradin: There is a lot of paperwork involved. You don’t automatically get them. The first thing that you need to know is that you have to have had a valid driver’s license when you were pulled over in the first place. Then, there are several things that need to be done. A petition needs to be filed, which your attorney can file for you. You have to include an alcohol assessment, a fee, an employment letter, and a DL 123 Insurance Form.
