DRIVER’S LICENSE HEARING PROCESS
The Law Office of Lee Meadows has over 38 years experience assisting people needing guidance about the Driver’s License Hearing Process in Tallahassee.
What Happens After the Hearing?
AFTER THE HEARING
If you lose the hearing, your license will be suspended for 30 days if you submitted to chemical testing and your breath or blood alcohol was over .08., or 90 days if you refused chemical testing. You will not be eligible for a hardship permit during that time. If you win the hearing, your driving privileges will be reinstated. If you have had two refusals, you are not entitled to a hardship license for at least 18 months.
WAIVING THE HEARING:
You may choose to waive your right to a hearing. You must submit the proper documentation and enroll in DUI school within 10 days of your arrest. If you choose to waive the hearing, your license will be reinstated, but you lose the opportunity to cross-examine law enforcement. The officers’ testimony is often valuable to your criminal case. An experienced attorney can help you decide which is the best option for you. Throughout his 36+ years of experience, Lee Meadows has conducted thousands of driver’s license review hearings and is here to help you determine the best strategy.
