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 from Lewis & Laws, PLLC for help. Our firm knows how to represent your rights during an administrative hearing so that you can avoid a driver's license suspension altogether, and we have helped countless clients in the past fight their DUI charges.
