I am presuming that Monday is your arraignment (initial appearance) and you'll get another court date to afford you the opportunity to speak with counsel (which you should do). Your license may have been suspended for an administrative issue (non-satisfied judgment on state taxes in some states or non-paid child support judgment) or an unpaid parking ticket).

1. You need to examine before you go to court your record. You can do this online in Arkansas at "driver's watch"

2. At your initial appearance if not afforded the opportunity to speak with counsel or a subsequent hearing, you may request an other court date especially if you disagree with the reasons for the suspension or believe it was in error.

3. If afforded the opportunity to confer with counsel before the next court appearance do so. Many criminal defense attorneys will give you the initial meeting for free. Bring a copy of the DMV report.

4. If you disagree the the DMV report make inquiries at the DMV to see if there is a agency method to challenge disputed information.
