What is the administrative hearing after a DUI?

Being charged with drunk driving in Oklahoma is the start of a long process that might seem daunting if this is your first time in the criminal justice system. You need to understand that there are many things that happen with this charge. You aren't likely going to have to deal only with the criminal law aspects of the situation. You may also need to work on the administrative penalties you are facing, which could involve the loss of your driving privileges.

Because there is so much involved in these cases, you should have a basic understanding of a few points. These answers to common questions about the administrative side of the matter are a good place for you to start.

Will my driver's license be suspended?

Your driver's license is eligible for suspension once you are charged with drunk driving. If you took a breath test to determine your blood alcohol concentration, the revocation date is 30 days from the date you are served with a copy of the officer's affidavit. If you took a blood test, you will receive an Order of Revocation in the mail that will tell you the date the suspension will begin.

Can I stop the revocation?

Requesting an Administrative Hearing for a DUI is necessary if you want to dispute the revocation. You have a short time, 15 days from the date you get the officer's affidavit, to submit a request for a hearing. If this time passes, you won't be able to ask for a hearing. If you took a blood test, the notice you get in the mail will have the deadline for requesting a hearing. Your driving privileges will remain in effect until the hearing if you file the dispute forms prior to the deadline.

If you have further questions about defending against a DUI charge, our law office is available to help you navigate your charges.
