15-Day Restricted Driving Deadline in DWI Cases

Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video the 15 day restricted driving deadline for DWI cases.

Hi, Tyson Mutrux here again with the Mutrux Law Firm and today we’re discussing the 15 day deadline for DWI cases. Now what I’m talking about is the 15 day deadline you have to request an administrative hearing and what happens if you miss that deadline.

So, as many of you probably already know from doing a quick google search is, when given the 15 day permit you are given when you are arrested, you have 15 days to request a hearing. If you do not request a hearing in 15 days you will automatically lose your license for 90 days if it’s a first time DWI. So, what happens if you miss that deadline?

Well, all is not completely lost if you have an extreme circumstance for why you may have missed it. Maybe a mail issue, or something like that. You can file what’s called, a Petition for Review and the court can look at it. But, you need to know that while that is pending your license will still be suspended and it’s a pretty good chance it still will not be overturned. So, the repercussions of missing that 15 day deadline are very extreme so make sure you don’t miss that deadline. Either file it yourself or give it to an attorney to have them file it.
