This is one of the most important questions we get from potential clients who call us. The answer is Yes, absolutely. If you are cited or arrested for DUI, then you must affirmatively request a hearing at the DMV in order to save your license from being revoked. This hearing is known as an “express consent hearing.” If you refused to submit to chemical testing or if you took a breath test resulting in a BAC above .08g/100 ml then you have 7 calendar days after the day you were cited to request a hearing. If you instead provided a sample of your blood, then you will receive a letter in the mail from the DMV notifying you that your driver’s license will be revoked based on your BAC. Again, you have only a short window of time to request a license revocation hearing once the DMV mails this letter to you. The letter will state the time you have to request a hearing. We recommend that the first action our client’s take (depending on which category listed above that your fall into) is to go to the DMV and either request a hearing if you have already received notice that your license will be revoked (refusal or breath test above .08 BAC) or ensure your mailing address is up to date with the DMV (blood sample). In Colorado Springs, the Department of Motor Vehicles DMV office at 2447 North Union Blvd is where you should go to request a hearing. This is the office where your future DMV hearing will be held.

There are other specific steps that we advise our clients to take in regard to the DMV that are crucial to effectively handling both the driver’s license revocation action and that can impact the criminal case.
