After you get a DUI in Arizona, there are two ways you can receive notice of a license suspension.
Either through an Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit or through a Corrective Action notice. The difference between the two is really in how you get notified. There is no difference in the penalty or length of suspension you will receive.
Please note: There is no way to speed up the suspension process. The date the MVD gives you in Admin Per Se/Implied Consent Affidavit or in the Corrective Action notice is the soonest you can start the suspension.
Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit.
If your BAC was determined via an intoxilizer breath test (not the handheld portable breath test) or if you refused your blood draw or breath test; you most likely received an “Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit.” While the information contained therein will be different for each case, the Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit document should look like this:
If you received the Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit then your suspension start date should be listed on the document. You have 15 days from the date the Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit is served on you to contest it. Until the suspension starts you may continue to drive; simply use the Admin Per se/Implied Consent Affidavit as your license.
