DPS HEARING ATTORNEYS IN NORMAN
Protecting Your Driver's License at DPS Hearings in Oklahoma
If you have been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) in Oklahoma, your driver's license is on the line. If you exercised your legal right to refuse to take a breath or blood test, your license has already been revoked. In either situation, it is critical to seek legal guidance and representation from an experienced DUI defense lawyer.
At Nichols Dixon, we can fight to help you protect your driving privileges. We understand that your ability to drive can have a significant impact on your day-to-day life. Let us build a strong defense on your behalf to present during your hearing before the Norman Department of Public Safety (DPS).
Skilled and Resourceful Oklahoma Driver's License Defense
Whatever the exact circumstances of your case, prompt action is critical if you want to have any chance of continuing to drive legally — even back and forth to work.
How Long Do I Have to Request a Hearing Before the Oklahoma DPS?
If you do not request a hearing before DPS within 15 days of your arrest, your driver's license will be suspended for a lengthy period whether or not you are ultimately convicted of DUI.
What is the Purpose of a DPS Hearing?
The purpose of the DPS hearing is to determine whether you will be allowed to retain your driving privileges or receive a limited/modified "hardship" license. Our lawyers have handled many such hearings and obtained a variety of positive outcomes.
