Driver License Suspension Telephone Hearings Information
(For DUI Cases Only)
Your Department of Licensing DUI driver license suspension case will not be heard in Snohomish County court.

The appointed DOL Hearing officer will phone you as well as your lawyer on your lawyer's business office speaker telephone ... or perhaps on your own house or cell phone if you fail to get a DUI lawyer.
