Wisconsin DUI License Suspension

If you’ve been Arrested for DUI…You Need to Act FAST…

A person arrested for a Wisconsin OWI is given a Notice of Intent for Suspension along with a Request for an Administrative Review Hearing. It is important to go through all of the paperwork received after a Wisconsin OWI because the paperwork is time sensitive. The Notice of Intent to Suspend allows a person arrested for a Wisconsin DUI to have a valid license for the next 30 days. In order to fight this automatic suspension, a License Suspension Review Hearing must be requested within 10 days.

What is a Wisconsin DUI License Suspension Review Hearing?

An Administrative Review Hearing is a DMV hearing to review your case prior to administratively suspending your driver’s license. The hearing focuses on the whether the police officer had witnessed the person driving the vehicle, the Reasonableness of the Officer Stopping the Person, and if there was probable cause for the arrest. The police report, the testimony of the arresting officer, and the chemical evidence are reviewed at this time.

Why is it Important to Request an Administrative Review Hearing in Wisconsin?

An Administrative Review Hearing is set within 30 days of the Notice to Suspend your license. The Administrative Review hearing is important because it is the first chance your attorney will have to find out what really happened... at least what the officer says happened. This also allows the DMV representative to understand whether the above requirements were met and successful. If the requirements are not met, it could mean that the driver’s privilege to drive a motor vehicle is not automatically suspended at this time.
