Driver License Suspension Telephone Hearings Information
(For DUI Cases Only)
Your Department of Licensing DUI driver license suspension case will not be actually heard in Snohomish County court. Alternatively it will be heard totally 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 probably be arranged for within 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The selected DOL Hearing officer will get in touch with you as well as your lawyer on your lawyer's office audio speaker phone ... or perhaps on your own home or cell phone in case you don't get a DUI lawyer.
