One of the major consequences of a DUI offense and conviction is the suspension of your driving privileges. You face a driver’s license suspension or revocation by an action of the both the court and Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV). You have fifteen days to request a hearing with DMV to contest a driver’s license suspension or revocation.
In order to best protect your driver’s license, call the Phoenix, Arizona,Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC at 602-957-3300.
Depending on the number of your prior DUI convictions, you may lose your license from anywhere from 90 days to three years. As a Criminal Law Specialist Certified by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization, attorney Howard Snader will represent you during a Department of Motor Vehicle license suspension hearing.
Although winning the hearing is difficult, you still should request a DMV hearing before an administrative law judge because:
- The request will delay the actual suspension of your driving privileges until after the hearing
- Howard Snader will have the opportunity to question the arresting officer under oath at the hearing
- Your insurance premiums will rise less from a DMV suspension then they would from a court order license suspension
Restricted Driver’s License
If your license is revoked, you may qualify for a restricted, limited use driver’s license. Depending on the number of DUI charges on your record, whether your DUI was a regular or extreme DUI, and whether charged as a felony, you may petition the DMV for a restricted license after a period of time. If revoked for 90 days, you may petition the hearings officer for a restricted license after 30 days. To learn more about DMV hearings contact the Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC.
