Understanding DUID Charges

While a Breathalyzer test is used to gauge intoxication by alcohol, there is no singular test that can be used to gauge impairment by illegal and/or prescription drugs. The police officer will use any means necessary to get the information needed to make an arrest for DUID. Occasionally, a drug recognition expert (DRE) is brought in to observe the driver's behavior. If you have been arrested for DUI drugs, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected when it seems like all odds are stacked against you.

Individuals who are charged with DUI drugs in California must schedule a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of the arrest. If you contact our law firm within a few days of your arrest, we can help you schedule this hearing, at no charge or obligation.
