When an individual is charged with drunk driving in the state of Washington, he or she faces two separate court cases: the criminal case to address the DUI/DWI charges and a Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing to address driver's license suspension.
Did you know? Even if you are not convicted of DUI/DWI, you can still lose your driver's license. Your criminal case and license suspension hearing are two separate procedures. Work with an attorney who can help you address both components of your case.

Depending on what your blood alcohol content was at the time of your arrest, you may face license suspension for a period of 90 days or more. If you refuse to take a breathalyzer or blood test, your license may be suspended for a year.
If you wish to save your license, you will need to file a request for a hearing before the Washington State Department of Licensing within 20 days of your arrest — otherwise your license will automatically be suspended.
