    First, if you do not request a hearing from the Driver's License Division within 10 days of the citation, your driver's license will be automatically suspended; you should request a hearing immediately. Next, you should have a court date in criminal court. At that point you will be given the opportunity to plead guilty or not guilty. If you plead not guilty, you will be given another court date. To have any chance of keeping your driver's license, hire an attorney immediately.

    At your next court hearing, you need to ask for a public defender if you think you qualify, and then enter a plea of not guilty, so the attorney can review the police report with you. If you do not qualify for a public defender, you need to get your own attorney, the earlier the better.
