If you fail or refuse a breath, blood, or urine test, the police will take your license from you, on the spot. They will give you a long, yellow sheet of paper titled, "Implied Consent Combined Report."
This document advises that DMV is suspending your license. This long sheet of paper becomes your temporary driving permit when you sign it. Your temporary permit will remain in effect for 30 days. To challenge the license suspension, you have to request a hearing within 10 days of the date of your citation or arrest.
If you challenge your suspension, you will get a hearing within 30 days of your arrest. At the hearing, if you may be able to show that the proposed suspension should not go into effect.
