WASHINGTON STATE DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING
Driver License Suspension Telephone Hearings Information
(For DUI Cases Only)
Your Department of Licensing DUI driver license suspension case will most likely never be actually heard in King County court. Alternatively it will be heard entirely in a telephone conference call with the assistance of a Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing officer specified to your DUI license suspension case. This particular DOL telephone hearing will probably be scheduled inside 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The delegated DOL Hearing officer will phone you as well as your lawyer on your lawyer's office audio speaker telephone ... or perhaps on your own home or cell phone in case you don't have a DUI lawyer.
