Experienced With All Aspects Of Administrative License Suspension Cases
Most motorists know that after a DUI arrest, there will be a criminal case that may result in penalties if there is a conviction. However, in Kansas and Missouri, there is a separate administrative process that accompanies an arrest as well. This relates to the suspension of a motorist’s driving privileges, and a motorist must take immediate action to protect his or her license.
In both states, a driver who is charged with DUI must request a hearing in order to contest the suspension of a driver’s license. If the driver does not request a hearing in this short amount of time, the hearing is deemed waived and the suspension is put in place. Motorists will be unable to drive during the period of this suspension. If you do request a hearing, your license will be valid until the hearing occurs.
What You Need To Know About Administrative License Suspension Matters
Many drivers are unaware of this separate track concerning administrative license suspension. They fail to act in the limited time frame established by the states’ DUI laws, and this means that they will be unable to challenge the suspension. They also miss a key opportunity to learn more about the evidence that the prosecutors intend to use against them in the criminal case.
