What should I do if I have been arrested for DWI in New Mexico?

The most important thing you must do after an arrest for DWI is to submit a request for an administrative hearing regarding the revocation of your driver's license to the Motor Vehicles Division, along with a payment of $25.00. If you fail to request this hearing within 10 days of your arrest you will automatically lose your license, even if you are not guilty of DWI. If possible you should retain an attorney immediately so that your attorney can make the proper request for hearing.
