There are two separate parts to a DUI case in Utah. They are the “criminal” part and the “civil” part. The reason for the civil part is because according to Utah state law, your driver’s license is automatically suspended if you are arrested for DUI. The only way to fight this automatic suspension is to request a Driver’s License Review Hearing. You are required to request this hearing within 10 days of your suspension. The driver’s license review hearings take place not at various Driver’s License Division offices around the state. Hearings will be by appointment and you will have to opportunity to argue your case to the Driver’s License Hearing officer as to why your License should not be suspended. If you have hired a lawyer, they should be present at your
hearing. Having a knowledgeable and aggressive lawyer can greatly help your chances of keeping your driver’s license even after a DUI. Call Utah Freedom Fighters and let award-winning Criminal Defense Attorney, Sean Druyon work hard for you.
