How to Request a Kansas Drivers License Hearing in Prairie Village
Your initial court date may be four to six weeks from the date you were arrested, but if it is alleged that you Refused to Submit to Chemical Testing or that you Failed a Breathalyzer (.08 result or greater) you have only fourteen calendar days or ten business days (whichever is later) to request an Administrative Drivers License Hearing. The Officer should have given you a DC-27 form (Pink Form); the date of service is the date listed on this form. A $50.00 fee must be included with your request for a Drivers License Hearing. Read the fine print: No $50.00 fee means your request for review will be automatically denied and your Kansas Driving Privileges suspended or revoked without a hearing. When you hire the Law Offices of Charles R. Green one of the first steps we take for you is to request the Drivers License Hearing on your behalf with the Kansas Department of Revenue. This not only protects your right to review constitutional issues involved in the DUI investigation and adherence to KDHE testing / Breathalyzer protocol by the arresting officer; it also allows you to continue to have driving privileges during the administrative process.
