Keeping Your Driving Privileges Intact
If you have been accused of driving under the influence in South Carolina, you have many choices to make. The attorney you choose to guard your rights can make a significant difference for your future. If you refuse to submit to an evidentiary Breathalyzer test, or measure above .15 BAC, you likely will have your license suspended.
Striving Towards Keeping You On The Road
An administrative license suspension is handled separately from the criminal case. If you are accused of DUI test refusal, law enforcement likely will not tell you that you can request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles to protect your driver’s license. Failing to request the hearing to challenge your suspended license will result in the suspension remaining in full effect, even if you successfully challenge the charges in criminal court.
You only have 30 days to request an administrative hearing to challenge the suspension. It is crucial that you seek the advice and representation from a knowledgeable DUI defense lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights.
