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 Snohomish County court. Instead it will be heard entirely in a telephone conference call by a Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing officer designated to your DUI license suspension case. This DOL telephone hearing will probably be arranged for within 60 days of your DUI arrest date. The assigned DOL Hearing officer will get in touch with you and also your lawyer on your lawyer's office speaker phone ... or on your own house or cell phone if you do not get a DUI lawyer.
