You have 20 days after your DUI arrest to request a hearing with the Washington Department of Licensing (DOL). If you fail to take action within this time frame, you will be unable to fight the suspension of your driver's license. The DOL license suspension hearing allows you to challenge the basis for suspending your driver's license. Winning that hearing means you keep your driver's license and are able to continue getting to work and supporting your family.
Even people facing their first DUI charge are subject to having their license suspended for a significant amount of time, a mandatory minimum of 90 days.
To be in the best position to maintain your right to drive, it is best if you do not talk to anyone before consulting with an attorney. At the Law Office of James E. Sedney, we will defend you against DUI charges in criminal court and represent you in your hearing before the Department of Licensing (DOL).
