Demand a DMV hearing to keep your license

Posted by Peter Carini | Jan 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

The Oregon DMV is in the business of giving out driver licenses and taking them back. They love to take them back. When you get arrested for an Oregon DUI the police officer will take your driver license away if you refused to blow into a machine or fail a breath test.

When the police officer takes your plastice license, the officer will give you a temporary license that is good for only 30 days. It is a paper license. If you want to get your license back and not get a suspension, you need to demand a hearing from the Oregon DMV.

You have only 10 days from the date of the arrest to ask for the hearing. After 10 days, it will be too late.

You can call us and we will help you request a hearing in the right way, at the right time, and we will send your hearing request to the right place. No charge.  

But be aware, the DMV license suspension process is separate from and unrelated to any proceedings filed in court. The DMV proceeding and the court case are two distinct and different matters.

Big grain of salt. Be careful educating yourself from information on web sites. It is all very general, some of it is old and stale, and some is just wrong. Face it. You are going to have to call an attorney. Most good judges will tell you that when you see them in court. So, why not do it now?
