DMV Hearings in Grants Pass
If you have been charged with a DUII then you will likely also be facing a potential driver’s license suspension. The DMV will attempt to suspend your driver’s license and this attempt will be totally independent of what happens with your case in Court.
If you failed a breath test (blew 0.08% or higher) then the DMV will try to suspend your license for 90 days. If you refused to blow or if you refused to provide a urine sample then the DMV will try to suspend it for a full year. The suspension will go into place 30 days from the date of your arrest.
You can fight your DMV suspension, but you must move quickly. You have to ask for a hearing within 10 days of the date of your arrest or you will lose your opportunity to fight it and your license will be automatically suspended. There is no adverse consequence for fighting your suspension. This means that you can fight your suspension and even if you lose there will not be any further consequence for fighting it.
If any of these scenarios happened then you may be able to beat your license suspension and there will be no DMV suspension of your license:
• The office stopped your car or arrested you without probable cause.
• You asked to make a phone call to a lawyer, family member, or friend and the officer did not let you.
• The officer did not conduct a proper 15 minute waiting period before obtaining a breath sample.
• The officer failed to use the mandated checklist.
