Take note that when you are arrested for DUI, you face both administrative and criminal penalties. After your arrest, you only have 10 days to request an administrative hearing in order to dispute your automatic license suspension. If you fail to request a hearing within that time frame, your right to a hearing is considered to have been waived.
The criminal component of your DUI charges will begin shortly thereafter. In Alameda County, DUI offenses are handled by the Criminal Division of the Alameda County Court system.
