From the moment you are placed under arrest for a suspected DUI here in Oregon, you will only have 10 days in which to submit a request to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for an administrative hearing. DMV hearings are separate, and in addition to, the criminal proceedings individuals must go through when facing charges for DUI.
