The California DUI Process
Being arrested for DUI in California can set in motion a complex series
of events including hearings, pre-trial motions, and police custody. If

be placed under arrest.
What follows in the DUI process usually includes:
Booking—done by police at the station where you will be fingerprinted, photographed
and jailed. You may be released soon from jail and given a court date
without having to post bail.
Court hearing—you will go to court if the DA's office files a criminal complaint
against you. Here you will be advised of your charges and enter a plea.
DMV hearing—your driver's license will be suspended unless you request a
DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest. An attorney form our firm can
