Department of Licensing, License Suspension, SR-22 Insurance, License Revocation, and Ignition Interlock Devices:

In addition to the Court’s action against a DUI defendant, the Department of Licensing (DOL) will also seek to impose penalties to take away the license of those who refuse a breath/blood test or those who take the breath/blood test, but have a certain alcohol concentration.  Furthermore, high risk (SR-22) insurance is required of anyone who loses their license by Department of Licensing (SR-22 is required for 3 years after a finding of DUI by the Department of Licensing).  This can cost thousands of dollars over the years.

Every case is different, and an experienced DUI Attorney should be consulted about the particular aspects of any case.  Below, you can see the grid the Department of Licensing (DOL) uses in determining license suspensions and revocations in WA for DUI / DWI.

An experienced DUI / DOL Attorney can help you fight your case against the Department of Licensing and the court.  As the defendant in the matter, you MUST submit a request for a hearing to Department of Licensing (and a $200 hearing fee) within 20 days of the arrest for DUI.  Attorney Brian Sullivan handles numerous DOL hearings and will fight to keep the Department from taking your license and your freedom.
