Warning: You have only 15 days from the date of arrest (when you were given notice of license suspension) to appeal the automatic revocation of your driver’s license.
Filing the appeal serves several two main purposes: (1) the possibility of saving your license from suspension or revocation and (2) important discovery is gained which will benefit your criminal case.
Failing to request an appeal will result in your license being automatically revoked 40 days after your arrest. Your lawyer should advise you on the license revocation procedures and handle the appeal for you. Should your license be revoked, you will need to obtain an occupational license or refrain from driving until your suspension is lifted.
The lawyers at Musick & Musick LLP will fight to keep your license after the appeal period while using the appeal process to gain valuable information like police reports, sworn statements, and testimony.
