If you were required to give blood to determine your BAC and you consented to having your blood drawn without a search warrant; you most likely were allowed to keep your license after your arrest. Therefore, instead of receiving the Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit you will likely receive a “Corrective Action” notice in the mail some 1-3 months after your arrest. The delay is due to the police waiting for your blood test results before mailing a copy of the Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit to the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) and the sheer volume of notices the MVD has to process.
While the information contained therein will be different for each case, the Corrective Action document should look like this:
Your suspension start date should be listed on the document.
Keep in mind that we only have 15 days from the date the Corrective Action notice was mailed (not received) to contest it. Failure to receive notice in the mail is not an excuse for driving on suspended license or failure to timely request a hearing. So to ensure that you receive your notice in a timely manner you must check to see if your address on file with the MVD is correct by going to www.servicearizona.com.
