DMV Misinforms About Right to Hearing

March 15, 2010

A prospective client called today about a DUI case. The client had gone to the Wilson Boulevard DMV office to apply for an administrative hearing on his license suspension, only to be told that he was not eligible for a hearing because he had refused the breath test. WRONG! I can’t imagine why anyone at DMV would misinform someone about his rights under the law. I hope that this was just a mistake by someone new who misunderstood the rules and that a supervisor intervenes before anyone else is turned away.

If, heaven forbid, this were to happen to you, cite the statute,  http://tinyurl.com/yefudgq, and hold your ground! Better yet, call an experienced DUI lawyer before your 10 days runs out!
