    Many things can happen. You don't have to answer incriminating questions. I definitely recommend hiring an attorney.

    You most certainly will not have to talk (you have the right to remain silent) unless it is to tell the court whether you need a public defender or would like to hire a private attorney. If you hire a private attorney prior to the court date then the attorney can waive your appearance so you do not need to go to court. If you are offered a deal when you do go to court you should not accept it until you have had the chance to have a lawyer review the evidence against you and determine whether the offer is actually in your best interest.

    Yes you will have to speak if you do not hire an attorney. A conviction for DUI can have serious consequences for you in the future. You really should hire an attorney and see if you have any defenses available to you.
