When you have been arrested for a DUI offense, in addition to the criminal charges you face in court, you will normally be subject to a separate suspension or revocation of your driver's license by the Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) regardless of the outcome of your court case.
You have only 20 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing to prevent an automatic loss of your driving privilege.
Depending on your circumstances, you face a 90-day to 2-year loss of your driver's license. If your license is suspended or revoked, you will be required to maintain high-risk SR22 insurance for 3 years at up to 3 times the normal insurance rates. You may also be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on your car, and be subject to additional enhanced penalties for 7 years.
We are available to represent our clients in all matters before the Washington State Department of Licensing, especially those related to a DUI arrest.
One of the many advantages of choosing Ted C. Barr & Associates to represent you in your DUI and/or DOL cases is flexibility. In other words, you can hire us for either case or both, at the same time or separately. We like to give you as many options as possible.
Another advantage is that we use a DOL consultant (a retired DOL director) on each of our driving-related cases. He assists us in achieving superior results and assists you with any other licensing problems you may encounter.
