Always Request Within 15 Days!

Posted by Alan Woodland | Jan 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

If arrested for DUI, the licensee has 15 days from the date of arrest to request an administrative hearing. This is the first chance to win the driving privileges back. I say "win" because when arrested, the drivers license is revoked and a temporary license is issued. The temporary license expires in 30 days of the arrest. 

Q: "I've been told not to have the hearing because nobody wins."

Not true. I've won the administrative hearing, and driving privilege (license), when all of the odds seemed stacked against my client. However, I can guarantee a loss if the request for a hearing isn't filed within 15 days of the arrest and/or there is no hearing held.

One should almost always exhaust the administrative process and fight for the right to drive. Don't settle for a "modified" license at the onset. Don't hire an attorney that advises you against having the hearing, or just doesn't do them.

I'll fight for you.
