A first time DUI can mean lots of things, but the first thing you need to understand is that a DUI is actually two separate cases in one. There is a criminal case which is filed either in county court or municipal court AND a separate administrative proceeding before the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. It is also important to know that if you don't ask for a hearing in your administrative proceeding within fifteen (15) days of your arrest you will automatically lose the administrative proceeding and have your licence revoked, regardless of whether you were actually driving under the influence. So you must act fast and you must do so in writing.
