If my driver's license has been suspended for DUI, how do I get to and from work or school?
After you have been arrested for a DUI,
the police officer will probably take your license and you will not be
able to drive until you request a hearing to contest the suspension. You
only have 20 days from your arrest to request this hearing and if you
do not request a hearing or if the hearing examiner doesn't decide in
your favor, your license will be suspended for 90 days to 2 years. Your
driver's license suspension will begin 60 days from the date of your arrest, but you may be able to get a restricted license during this time.
An Ignition Interlock Driver's License allows you to drive a vehicle for
the period of your suspension or revocation if that vehicle has been
equipped with an ignition interlock device. Instead of simply accepting
defeat after you are arrested for DUI, you can fight the possibility of a
driver's license suspension altogether by calling a Seattle DUI lawyer
