Learn How To Request Your Driver’s License Hearing After An OVI Arrest

After an arrest for operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI), you must request a hearing with the judge overseeing your DUI / OVI case in order to appeal the administrative license suspension (ALS) imposed by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). This hearing will afford you the opportunity to protect your license, driving privileges, and your ability to drive without any restrictions.

Failure to request a hearing will result in an automatic driver’s license suspension if the arresting officer has reasonable grounds to believe you were driving under the influence (DUI) and you tested over the limit in blood alcohol content (BAC), or you refused to take a chemical test.

You can request a hearing to protect your license, but you only have a narrow window to do so. This must happen within 30 days of your arrest or you will undergo an automatic driver’s license suspension from the BMV. Our team must help you protect your interests.
