Protecting Your Driver's License At The DPS Hearing

If you have been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) in Oklahoma, your driver's license is absolutely on the line. If you exercised your legal right to refuse to take a breath or blood test, your license has already been revoked. In either situation, it is critical to seek legal guidance and representation from an experienced DUI defense lawyer.

Skilled, Resourceful And Decisive Driver's License Defense

Whatever the exact circumstances of your case, prompt action is critical if you want to have any chance of continuing to drive legally — even back and forth to work. If you do not request a hearing before the Department of Public Safety (DPS) within 15 days of your arrest, your driver's license will be suspended for a lengthy period whether or not you are ultimately convicted of DUI.

Contesting your driver's license suspension in an Oklahoma DPS hearing is a proven strength at this firm. Issues considered may include:

  • Whether police had reasonable cause to stop your vehicle, ask you to submit to blood alcohol content (BAC) or drug testing and ultimately arrest you
  • Whether you were properly informed of your legal rights involving testing
  • Results of testing or circumstances surrounding your refusal to take a test

Working from full-service offices in Norman and Wewoka, Oklahoma, experienced attorneys at Nichols Dixon can ably advise and represent you in both the criminal DUI case against you and in civil proceedings involving the DPS and your license. The purpose of the DPS hearing is to determine whether you will be allowed to retain your driving privileges or receive a limited/modified "hardship" license. Lawyers at this firm have handled many such hearings and obtained a variety of positive outcomes.
