How Do I Request a Drivers License Hearing in Gladstone?
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 Clay 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.

In Missouri you have fifteen days from the date of a chemical test failure to request a Drivers License 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 have served you with a 15-Day Temporary Driver Permit (Missouri DOR Form 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.
