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 King County court. Alternatively it will be heard completely in a telephone conference call with the assistance of a Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing officer designated to your DUI license suspension case. This DOL telephone hearing will most likely be arranged inside 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The assigned DOL Hearing officer will phone you and your lawyer on your lawyer's office speaker phone ... or perhaps on your own residence or cell phone if you do not have a DUI lawyer.
