Will My License be Suspended for a DUI?

Posted Friday, July 21, 2017 by Andrew Charles Huff

If you are arrested for Driving Under the Influence, your license is not revoked right away and you may continue to drive as long as it was valid prior to your arrest. At the current time, you must request a hearing with the Department of Licensing within 20 days from the date of arrest. If your blood is drawn instead, this 20-day period applies from the date the DOL notifies you of a potential suspension based upon your blood draw results. This hearing with the DOL is a telephonic administrative hearing allowing you to challenge any suspension. The DOL will provide the exhibits, which are primarily the police reports and the time/date of the hearing and hearing officer assigned to the case

This hearing, while civil and unrelated to the criminal charge, is also handled by me as part of my legal representation.

You need to act quickly if you find yourself in this situation. Call my office right away if you or anyone you know has been arrested for a DUI in Washington state.
