If I Get A DUI In Arizona, What Happens In Court?

Important note: Remember you will be processed through both the Court and MVD. For the most part, these are completely separate and distinct processes. MVD is a civil process and the Court is a criminal process. This article applies only to the court process.

If you are arrested for a DUI, extreme DUI, or super extreme DUI in Arizona, you will face a court proceeding to determine if you are guilty or innocent of the charge and what your punishment, if any, will be. You may feel confused and overwhelmed by the process and what to expect at each step.

In Arizona, DUIs, extreme DUIs, and super extreme DUIs are all misdemeanor charges. They are governed by Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) §§ 28-1381 – 1382. If you are charged with a misdemeanor DUI, more information can be found in our book, DUI: The Next Day.
