What is the "Ten Day Rule" in Florida DUI Cases?

What is the "Ten Day Rule" in a Florida DUI case? That is the rule which says that if you have been arrested for DUI in Florida and you refused to blow into a machine or if you refused to give a sample of your blood or urine, your driver's license will be suspended for at least 1 year by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles ("DMV") unless you ask for a hearing within 10 days of being arrested.

Also, if you blew into the machine and it registered 0.08% or higher, your driver's license will be suspended for at least 6 months unless you ask for a hearing within 10 days of being arrested. Florida DMV is very strict about this 10-day time limit, so be sure to have your lawyer request this hearing on your behalf if you wish to contest the suspension of your license.
