I have been Served With A Pink Form (DC-27)_: How Do I Request a Kansas Drivers License Hearing in Westwood?
Your initial court date may be four to six weeks from the date you were cited, 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 greater) to request an Administrative Drivers License Hearing with the Kansas Department of Revenue. The Westwood Police Officer should have given you a DC-27 form (Pink Form); the date of service is the date on this form. A $50.00 processing fee must be included with your request for a Kansas 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 retain 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 possible constitutional issues involved in the DUI investigation and compliance with KDHE testing / Breathalyzer protocol by the officer; it also allows you to continue to have full driving privileges during the administrative process.
