Driver License Suspension Telephone Hearings Information
(For DUI Cases Only)
Your Department of Licensing DUI driver license suspension case will never be actually heard in Snohomish County court. Rather it will likely be heard completely in a telephone conference call with the assistance of a Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing officer appointed to your DUI license suspension case. This particular DOL telephone hearing will most likely be planned for within 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The appointed DOL Hearing officer will phone you as well as your lawyer on your lawyer's office audio speaker phone ... or perhaps on your own residence or cell phone in case you don't get a DUI lawyer.
