How Do I Request a Drivers License Hearing in Lee's Summit?
The first court appearance, or arraignment, is a formal reading of the
charges against you and may be four to six weeks from the date you are
arrested and charged with DUI. However the clock starts running immediately
on the right to review or contest the potential suspension of your Missouri
Driving Privileges. In Missouri you have fifteen days from the date of
a chemical test failure (Breathalyzer result of .08 or greater) to request
a Drivers License Hearing.
If the Officer maintains that you refused to submit to testing, you face
a possible one-year revocation of your Drivers License and a Petition
for Review must be filed in Jackson County within 30 days. The request for Administrative Hearing is a Civil matter and is a completely
separate matter from the criminal case (DUI) filed against you. If the
request is not made within the statutorily prescribed time you lose that
right to contest the suspension.

Hearing. If the Officer marked you down as a Refusal, a Petition for Review
must be filed in Circuit Court within 30 days. The Arresting Officer should

2385). The request must be made within fifteen days of service of the
form if a test failure ( B.A.C. of .08 or greater ) was recorded or a
Petition for Review must be filed within 30 days if law enforcement says
you refused to cooperate and submit a sample.
Note: Failure to Request a Drivers License Within the time period will
result in the forfeiture of the right to review and the automatic suspension
of your Missouri Driving Privileges no matter what the ultimate outcome
of the criminal case in court.

About Lee's Summit, Missouri
Lee's Summit is located primarily in Jackson County, Missouri; a small
portion of the city falls in Cass County as well. With less than 100,000
residents, Lee's Summit offers its residents a small-town atmosphere
with the opportunities of the greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Lee's
Summit is the sixth most populated city in Missouri. According to
Money Magazine, Lee's Summit is 27th on the country's list of best cities to live in.
After the Civil War, the area became known as "Strother," but
the town eventually changed its name to Lee's Summit after a local
postmaster, Dr. Pleasant John Graves Lea. Although the local residents
requested the name "Lea's Summit," a spelling mistake resulted
in town's current title: Lee's Summit. Historians believe that
Summit was included in the name because the town was built on approximately
the highest point on the Missouri Pacific Railroad between Kansas City
and St. Louis.
Today, Lee's Summit is known for its historic downtown area, local
attractions, and vibrant cultural community. Visitors can experience local
history at the Civil War Battle of Lone Jack Site, the Lee's Summit
