Should I Request A Hearing?
Having a hearing is the preferred course of action, as it is the only way to defeat a revocation and avoid having to have a breath machine on your vehicle. We recommend that everyone demand a hearing. In order to have a hearing, a person or their representative must request a hearing in writing to the Department of Public Safety within 15 days of the date of their arrest. Failure to do so will result in a revocation and limit your ability to do anything about the revocation except the possibility of a modification permitting you to drive with an interlock (breath test) device on your vehicle.
